Announcement from Local Editor Mike Semel, Deputy Local Editor Maria Glod and Local Enterprise Editor Lynda Robinson:

We are thrilled to announce that Steve Hendrix is returning to the Local Enterprise team after a stellar three years as The Post’s Jerusalem correspondent, during which he covered the fall of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the killing of Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh and other major stories. Steve has also played an important role in the Foreign desk’s coverage of Ukraine, most recently with memorable stories from the newly liberated areas around Kharkiv.

In his new role, Steve will write a mix of local, national and foreign stories, with periodic fill-in stints overseas.

Steve is an original and much-beloved member of the Local Enterprise team, so this will be a homecoming for him. During his previous decade on Local Enterprise, he chronicled a T. rex’s journey from Montana to D.C., anchored the ledeall on the 2017 Women’s March, reported on Christine Blasey Ford’s life, wrote the first story in our hate-crime series about a murderous misogynist, partnered with Josh Partlow on a profile of Pete Buttigieg during the 2020 primaries and turned weather stories into poetry.

His old colleagues are excited to collaborate with him again on breaking news and the ambitious projects that are a hallmark of the Enterprise team’s work. And, of course, he will keep us clued in on everything happening in Takoma Park, where he’s moving back into his home with his wife, Ann Hendrix-Jenkins, and their youngest child, Harry.

He joins us on Monday.
