Politico Names Dafna Linzer Executive Editor

From a post on axios.com by Sara Fischer headlined “Politico taps Dafna Linzer as executive editor”:

Politico has tapped Dafna Linzer as the new executive editor, replacing former top editor Carrie Budoff Brown, who left for a senior role at NBC News in January, editor-in-chief Matthew Kaminski announced.

Why it matters: Linzer, formerly the managing editor of politics for NBC News & MSNBC, will report to Kaminski.

  • Budoff Brown had been with Politico since its earliest days in 2007. Her departure was seen as a major loss to the organization.
