Announcement from Local Editor Mike Semel and Deputy Local Editor Monica Norton: 

We are pleased to welcome Amanda Finnegan to Metro as an assignment editor.

Amanda has been a jack of all trades since she arrived at The Post in 2012. She has been a homepage editor, National’s weekend assignment editor and interim editor of The Fix. She has excelled at each of those roles.

On Metro, Amanda will be helping Lynda Robinson with the Retropolis blog. She also will work with Steve Smith on education stories and with Victoria Benning on transportation.

Before arriving at The Post, Amanda was a Web producer at Bloomberg, a new media producer at the Las Vegas Sun and a reporter at the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Amanda will begin her new role on June 11.
