Ernesto Londono heads to Baghdad

Media Bistro picks up on a memo stating that Ernesto Londono becomes the newest member of the Foreign section of the Washington Post. As of next month he will be stationed in Baghdad where he’ll join Sudarsan Raghavan and correspondent Amit Paley. Londono succeeds Josh Partlow who is coming to the end of tour.

Ernesto is quite familiar with Iraq, which he covered for us during a two month rotation early last year. Among many others, his reporting produced a moving front page story about the revival of the stage at Baghdad’s National Theatre in the midst of war. link
