The Washington Post

Ryan McCarthy will oversee The Washington Post's Wonkblog and help out with Jim Tankersley's yet-unnamed collection of "new writers and data wizards," the Post announced Thursday.

At Reuters McCarthy edits Counterparties alongside Felix Salmon. "If you’re building a world-class roster of digital brands, you hire world-class talent to help manage them," a memo from Post business honchos says.

When Ezra Klein left the Post to start his new venture, since named Vox, the Post announced its intention to continue Wonkblog and Know More, his franchises there. "We plan to continue building those brands and expanding their reach," the Post said.
