Talking Biz News | The Washington Post
Fred Barbash will leave Reuters' Washington, D.C., bureau to rejoin The Washington Post, Chris Roush reports. At the Post, he'll lead a team tasked with "working overnight to magnify our news report so that readers have the most comprehensive, engaging reading experience possible when they wake up every morning," the Post's memo says.
Barbash worked at the Post from 1974 to 2006. He's also worked at CQ Weekly and Politico; he joined Reuters about two years ago, its D.C. bureau chief Marilyn Thompson says in a memo in Roush's post.
