Milton Coleman, a former senior editor at The Washington Post, is joining the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication as the Edith Kinney Gaylord Visiting Professor in Journalism Ethics at Arizona State University.
Coleman, who currently serves as ombudsman for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, will teach journalism ethics and diversity this fall at the Cronkite School. The veteran journalist retired from the Post in 2012 as senior editor, overseeing policies on corrections, standards and ethics.
Coleman started his career at the Post in 1976 as a reporter covering government and politics. He later became city editor and then assistant managing editor in charge of metropolitan news. In 1996, he was promoted to deputy managing editor, where he created news collaborations with Spanish-language news outlets. He was named senior editor in 2009.
