Announcement from Deputy Editorial Page Editor Ruth Marcus and Manager of Editorial Talent and Logistics Nana Efua Mumford:

We are excited to announce that Drew Goins will become an assistant editor for op-eds.

For the last three years, Drew has worked on the Opinions section’s operations team, optimizing our offerings for Web and growing our traffic. He also solicited outside op-eds and served as editor for columnist Alexandra Petri and the Post Pundit Power Ranking.

Drew came to The Post as an intern in summer 2016, when he worked on the news multiplatform desk. He stayed on after the internship, copyediting Local Living and the nightly paper, and spending a brief spell as a slot before making the jump to Opinions.

Before The Post, Drew edited for the Virginian-Pilot and the U.S. Department of Education. Raised outside of Charlotte and educated at the University of North Carolina, he is a Tar Heel born and a Tar Heel bred. He enjoys linguistics, baking and the intersection thereof (did you know “kouign-amann” is Breton for “cake butter”?). You might also find him kick-ball-changing across D.C.’s community musical theater scene.

Please join us in congratulating Drew on his new role.
