Carrie Budoff Brown Named Next Editor of POLITICO



Carrie Budoff Brown, who has been in the POLITICO newsroom since the publication launched in 2007, will be the news outlet’s next editor. After the November presidential election, and shortly before POLITICO turns 10 years old in January, Brown will fill the void left by current Editor Susan B. Glasser, who is moving to Jerusalem. Glasser, however, will not be leaving the POLITICO family behind; she will continue contributing in a strategic capacity as director of editorial innovation and writing as POLITICO’s chief foreign affairs columnist.

Brown’s experience at POLITICO spans topics, roles and geographic regions: after five years serving as White House correspondent, she has spent the last two years in Brussels as managing editor of POLITICO’s European newsroom, overseeing the Brussels, Berlin, London and Paris bureaus. In a staff memo, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief John Harris lauded Brown as “a star reporter turned accomplished editor” who understands “the imperative of never standing still” and “has POLITICO in her blood.”

Before working at POLITICO, Brown wrote for The Hartford Courant and The Philadelphia Inquirer.
