WaPo to Add Dozens to Newsroom

Hey, some good news!

Here’s something you don’t read every day: A newspaper is actually going to add to its newsroom next year.

According to Politico, The Washington Post plans to add more than 60 staffers to its team in 2017.

Fred Ryan, WaPo’s publisher and CEO, said new staffers will likely be spread among the paper’s mobile video unit, “rapid response” investigative team and breaking news desk.

The hiring binge is expected to be completed by the end of Q1 2017.
