From the Post’s internal announcement:
We are thrilled to announce that Tim Curran, editor of Roll Call newspaper, will join the National desk as the new politics editor. We expect Tim to play a key role in directing our 2008 campaign coverage both in the paper and on the website, and he will join Dan LeDuc and Eric Pianin in working with us both to generate high impact political enterprise stories and to develop the In The Loop page as the place to go for insight in how Washington works.
Tim brings to us a decade of experience running Roll Call’s trademark combination of hard-hitting congressional and campaign coverage. Under his stewardship, Roll Call transformed into a dramatically expanded, four day a week newspaper known for breaking big stories and winning the Dirksen Award for distinguished congressional coverage three consecutive years. We’re looking forward to Tim bringing those same sensibilities here, along with a talent for working closely with reporters.
A native of South Carolina, Tim grew up in Virginia and graduated from the College of William and Mary. Tim will start his new job here in February.
