Linzer Steps Down as Politico’s Executive Editor

From a Washington Post story by Sarah Ellison headlined “Dafna Linzer abruptly steps down as Politico’s executive editor”:

Dafna Linzer is leaving her role as executive editor of Politico a year after she took the job.

When Politico announced her hiring in late March 2022, editor in chief Matthew Kaminski called the move “one of the critical steps” the organization was taking “to position Politico for a great new era.”

Her hiring came on the heels of media juggernaut Axel Springer’s $1 billion acquisition of Politico in the fall of 2021. The German publisher has poured significant investment into the digital news site.
