Announcement from Foreign Editor Douglas Jehl, Interim Foreign Editor Susan Levine, and London Hub Editor Sara Sorcher:
We are very happy to announce that Alexandra Ma will join The Post as a breaking news editor in our hub in London.
Alex will be part of a rapidly expanding team that covers the most urgent and interesting stories that break anywhere in the world during the European day. The London hub is part of a round-the-clock relay in which responsibilities are handed off from Seoul to London to Washington to deliver timely, quality coverage to our global audience 24 hours a day.
These breaking news hubs have become integral to The Post’s newsroom since their launch a year ago. Alex joins us as part of an expansion under which the Seoul and London operations will grow by 40 percent this year, to 14 full-time staffers in each location.
Alex is currently a senior news editor for Insider Inc., running the London bureau’s breaking news team and serving as a point person in hand-over meetings with the publication’s main newsroom in New York. In her five years at Insider, she has also worked as a reporter specializing in breaking news, geopolitical analysis and China.
Alex began her career as an editorial fellow for HuffPost, based in New York. She is a graduate of Georgetown University, with a BS in foreign service, and of City, University of London, with an MA in interactive journalism. In addition to English, she speaks native Cantonese and is proficient in both French and Mandarin.
Alex will start work in the London hub on Sept. 26.
