Politico has announced a successor for Susan B. Glasser: Politico Europe managing editor Carrie Budoff Brown (at right) will be their next editor, as Glasser heads to Jerusalem as chief foreign affairs columnist. Glasser will continue to lead the newsroom through the presidential election, while Brown works on relocating from Brussels to Washington later this summer.
"One of first, most thorough and nicest people I met at Politico in 2010," declares NYT's Maggie Haberman.
Meredith Shiner with Yahoo News similarly reacts, "It's rare in DC for the smart, talented & kind people to rise to the top. This @cbudoffbrown fills me with pride."
At the Associated Press, Lisa Lerer is also excited, but has a question: "This @cbudoffbrown is great! Congrats! (But does it mean I have to return your stuff?!)"
... we'd love to know the story behind that one!
