Oklahoman’s Kelley named Washington Times editor

Washington Times | Oklahoman
Ed Kelley, 58, who has been The Oklahoman’s editor since 2003, says: “I am excited about working with The Washington Times‘ journalists and editors to continue The Times‘ long history of trusted news and conservative opinion.”

Mr. Kelley fills a position left vacant since the 29-year-old paper was purchased in November by a group operating on behalf of the paper’s founder, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon. The newspaper — which underwent a short-lived ownership change and staff and circulation cuts in 2010 — reintroduced an expanded edition in March that restored coverage in sports, local news and the arts. As part of the expansion, regional home delivery was also reinstated.
