Post Outlook editor to replace Yardley

The Washington Post's opinion editor Carlos Lozada will don a new mantle at the end of this year--that of nonfiction book critic. A long-time editor of the paper’s opinion section Post Outlook, Lozada will fill the role left behind by retiring critic Jonathan Yardley.

"Congratulations and farewell to Jonathan Yardley after three decades as @washingtonpost book critic," Lozada recently honored Yardley on Twitter. "It's been an honor to be @PostOutlook editor for the past five years. Now I'm excited to start a new adventure."

"Well if @CarlosLozadaWP is the WaPo's new nonfiction book critic, I guess I have to write another nonfiction book," Justin Fox resolved at the Harvard Business Review.

Meanwhile, Rome bureau chief Jim Yardley observed, "WashPost gave great sendoff today for my dad, Jonathan Yardley, retiring soon after 30 years as book critic. Then he gets to read for fun."

Felicitations, all around.
