We are excited to announce that Ali Pannoni will become The Post’s talent and community editor. In this role, Ali will help reimagine our community page and will work with editors and reporters to engage our growing digital audience in conversation.

Ali’s portfolio will include working on multimedia Q&As that will create a robust and dynamic way for our subscribers to learn from Post reporters, editors and experts.
