Peter will take on this role after an extraordinary run as the head of our political enterprise and investigative team. Under Peter’s leadership, what started as a small operation with four reporters is now a growing, award-winning powerhouse. His group has made a mark on nearly every big story there is, from problems at the Secret Service to the Russia investigation and President Trump’s business empire. Peter has done this while helping pioneer a faster, more innovative approach to investigative journalism that is better suited for the digital age.
Before becoming an editor in 2013, Peter was a White House reporter at The Post and before that a political reporter for the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald and St. Petersburg Times. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina and lives in Washington with his wife Stacey and their children, Isaac and Teddy.
In his new role, Peter will report to Deputy National Editor Lori Montgomery. He will start immediately. Please join us in congratulating him.
