Announcement from Multiplatform Editing Chief Jesse Lewis, Deputy Multiplatform Editor Courtney Rukan and Senior Multiplatform Editor Bryan Cleveland:

We are thrilled to announce that Stu Werner will become a member of The Post’s multiplatform editing desk.

Stu comes to us from the Chicago Tribune, where he has held important editing positions since 2001, including digital editor, copy desk chief and senior content editor. Stu has copy edited nationally recognized investigative reports for the Tribune, including its 2008 Pulitzer Prize-winning series on the faulty government regulation of toys, car seats and cribs.

Stu has also been an editor at the Indianapolis Star and the Tampa Tribune.

He holds a bachelor’s in journalism from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. And he isn’t new to the D.C. area. He attended Lee High School in Springfield, Va.
