Announcement from Subscriptions and Engagement Editor Tessa Muggeridge and Senior Director of Audience Ryan Kellett:

We’re excited to announce that Kelly Poe will join the Subscriptions and Engagement Team as a newsletter editor. She’ll help manage our portfolio of newsletters, launch new products that help create a path to digital subscriptions and develop our in-house email tool, Carta.

Kelly spent the past two years at The Post and Courier in Charleston, S.C., where she served as the first newsletter editor in the organization’s history. In her time there, Kelly transitioned the newsroom to a new email service provider, managed the redesign of several newsletters, developed a strategy for pop-up newsletters and even wrote a newsletter on business in Charleston.

Kelly has also been reporter in Alabama at The Birmingham News and in North Carolina at The News & Record. She's a native of Raleigh and a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, where she studied journalism.

Kelly (@kelly_poe) won't miss Charleston's flat landscape and the flooding that comes with it, but she will miss its beaches. As a hiking and camping enthusiast and amateur mountaineer, Kelly is excited to explore the mountains our region has to offer.

Please welcome Kelly to The Post when she joins us May 20.
