Veteran Jerusalem Post journalist David Brinn was appointed this week as the paper’s new managing editor, in place of Steve Linde, who has become editor-in-chief.

“We are all delighted with David Brinn’s new position,” Linde said. “He is a true professional whose years of experience and calm disposition make him an invaluable asset to the company and its staff. We all love David!” Joining the Post in 1990, five years after making aliya from Portland, Maine, with his wife Shelley, Brinn started out in the graphics department of the paper’s In Jerusalem supplement.

He quickly graduated to the daily paper, first as a layout editor and features writer and later as night editor, news editor and entertainment editor.

After 13 years at the paper, he ventured out in 2002 on his own to become editorial director of ISRAEL21c, a nonprofit Israel advocacy organization.

While he continued to contribute to the Post in the ensuing years, Brinn was brought back to the paper full time in 2008 by editor David Horovitz as deputy managing editor and feature writer. In 2009, he was awarded a USC Annenberg/Getty Arts Journalism Fellowship in California for his reporting, the only non-US-based writer granted the award.

In his new position as managing editor, Brinn will be integrally involved in the news-coverage aspect of the paper and continue his excellent coverage of music and the arts.

“I feel privileged to be part of the team with Steve, and hope to use my position to provide our outstanding reporting and editing staff with the support they require to do their jobs to the best of their capabilities,” Brinn said.
