Laura Wides-Muñoz, who joined Fusion from the Associated Press in January 2015 as Director of News Practices, has been promoted to a broader role in the company.
In her new role as VP for Special Projects and Editorial Strategy, she’ll be leading several initiatives for Fusion and the Fusion Media Group, including working with the RiseUp social impact team and Lightworks branded team on partnerships that complement the team’s editorial work.
Last year, Laura guided editorial efforts for the 19 Million Project, an initiative that sought to raise awareness about the global migration crisis.
Fusion has hired former Washington Post editors Tom Shroder and Lynn Medford to take over Laura’s duties. Both will be responsible for editorial standards on all Fusion platforms.
They will work out of Washington, D.C.
