Huffington Post appoints Lydia Polgreen as Editor-in-Chief

The Huffington Post has appointed Lydia Polgreen as its new Editor-in-Chief, the website announced on Tuesday. “I feel like we’re living in a moment right now where media has to fundamentally rethink its position vis-a-vis power,” Polgreen said, according to HuffPost.

HuffPost CEO Jared Grusd described Polgreen as “somebody who is mission-driven, somebody who believes in values and very specifically, the deep authentic values of journalism and the role of journalism in today’s marketplace.”

Polgreen has served as the Times’ West Africa bureau chief, South Asia bureau chief and Johannesburg bureau chief.

The Columbia University graduate also acted as Deputy International Editor, helping to oversee the launch of The New York Times en Español, and in April, she became the editorial director for NYT Global, part of a $50 million investment to grow the paper’s reach into multiple international markets.
