Norton Named WaPo’s Technology Editor

From an internal Washington Post announcement, obtained by FishbowlDC:

    We are pleased to announce that Monica Norton will be our new Technology Editor. Her experience directing education coverage (students are early adopters of technology), as well as her strong eye for interesting stories, makes her a terrific fit for this job. Monica is well liked by her reporters and her colleagues and we are eager to have her join our section.

    Monica was a reporter at The Evening Sun and The Baltimore Sun and was an editor at Gannett Suburban Newspapers in White Plains and Newsday. She joined The Post in 2005 and is currently education editor on the Maryland desk, where she oversees schools coverage and edits the Monday Education Page.

    Monica is a native of Baltimore who will never root for the Redskins. (It’s a Baltimore thing). After reading James Baldwin’s If Beale Street Could Talk in the 7th grade, she decided she wanted to live in Paris as a writer, which she may still do someday. Monica will move to the Financial staff on May 27.
