“In his new role, Teddy will write stories on the health topics that readers are seeing, searching and talking about on social media platforms, in comments and in real life. And he will use his extensive experience in audience strategy to help us lean into news moments, discover new ways to deliver personal health information, and create innovative service journalism that will help readers live well every day.

“Teddy, who has been a newsroom talent and community editor, brings seven years of experience in The Post’s audience team and a track record for innovation that makes him uniquely suited for this role. As a subscriber engagement editor, he organized and hosted live chats with Post journalists, including a recent Q&A with Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein on the 50th anniversary of the Watergate break-in. He has also helped edit and curate Post Most, one of our largest newsletters, and started a text-message digest for readers to keep tabs on the Summer Olympics.”
