The following excerpt was sent out from The Washington Post’s general assignment editor Keith McMillan and deputy managing editor Sharif Durhams:
We are delighted to announce that Ben Brasch is joining ...’s General Assignment desk, where he will cover breaking news and write of-the-moment features.
Ben comes to GA from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, where he has covered breaking news and politics in Fulton County since the start of 2021, and community news in Cobb County and North Fulton for more than four years before that.
Before coming to Atlanta, Ben covered breaking news for the News-Press in Fort Myers, Fla., and the Anchorage Daily News, and police for the Ledger in Lakeland, Fla. In Alaska, he once spent Christmas Day interviewing men on work release attempting to drill a hole for ice fishing.
Please join us in congratulating him.
