David Mark, a veteran DC political reporter and editor, has joined The Washington Examiner as deputy news editor. Most recently, he worked for Bloomberg Law as managing editor for privacy and data security but spent most of his career at Politico in various editorial roles. Mark was also editor-in-chief of Campaigns & Elections magazine from 2002 to 2006.
Mark’s hiring comes following the Washington Examiner’s relaunch of its weekly magazine and its planned expansion of editorial coverage.
Clarity Media Group, the parent company of The Washington Examiner, has been filling in top editorial positions since late last year. Toby Harnden, former Sunday Times of London Washington bureau chief, was named managing editor in October; Deputy Editor Paul Conner joined from The Daily Caller in December; and Seth Mandel, former op-ed page editor of The New York Post, was hired to lead the Washington Examiner Magazine, working with newly-hired Managing Editor Helen Andrews and Deputy Editors Jay Caruso and Grant Addison.
