POLITICO taps Paul Volpe for Executive Editor


KGq3qIltPaul Volpe will be named POLITICO’s next executive editor after a search for a successor for current executive editor Peter Canellos. Volpe joins POLITICO having served most recently as deputy politics editor and deputy Washington bureau chief for the New York Times. He will join POLITICO in December 2016. Editor-in-Chief John Harris said that Volpe is “a proven innovator” and brings “a unique mix of experience that covers journalism, technology, design and business.”

Peter Canellos will take on a new role as editor-at-large. Canellos will oversee POLITICO’s investigative team, allowing him to move away from daily news coverage and onto leading POLITICO’s efforts on “high impact” stories.
