NPR News will now have two managing editors.
Pulitzer-winning William K. Marimow has been tapped to oversee national coverage. On May 2, he will assume responsibility of the national news staff and work with NPR Online as well.
Marimow joins Managing Editor Barbara Rehm, who oversees foreign coverage and production of its newsmagazines and talk shows.
Marimow came to NPR from the Baltimore Sun, where he served as editor to 385 journalists for about four years. From 1993 to 2000, he was managing editor, metro editor and associate managing editor of the paper. He is a former assistant to the publisher of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News.
He and a partner won the Pulitzer Prize in 1978 for a series of stories on criminal violence by the Philadelphia Police Department. The series led to a Justice Department investigation of the homicide division, which resulted in the federal conviction of six detectives for conspiring to violate the civil rights of a man falsely convicted of murder.
