Washington Times to name new editor

By Terri Rupar

(Updated, 11.24 p.m.)

The Washington Times plans to name Sam Dealey, a right-leaning journalist and fellow at the conservative Hoover Institution, as its new editor.

Dealey, now a contributor to U.S. News & World Report, would succeed John Solomon as the paper’s top editor in the coming days, Times spokesman Donald Meyer confirmed Friday night. The appointment, first reported by U.S. News, could bring a measure of stability to an anxious staff reeling from layoffs that cost the paper half its employees.

Dealey, 36, has written for Time, GQ, Reader’s Digest and the New York Times. He has also reported from Africa for CNN and PBS.
