Fred Hiatt, an editorial writer for The Washington Post, was named the paper’s editorial page editor, filling the position held by longtime editor Meg Greenfield, who died in May.
Hiatt, 44, will take over in several months upon the retirement of Stephen S. Rosenfeld, who was named interim editorial page editor after Greenfield’s death.
Hiatt began his reporting career at the Atlanta Journal in 1979. After a brief stint at the Washington Star, which folded in 1981, he joined the Post, where he has specialized in foreign affairs. He was a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize this year.
