The following excerpt announcement was sent out by The Washington Post’s multiplatform editing chief Courtney Rukan, deputy multiplatform editing chief Brian Cleveland and news service managing editor Effie Dawson:
We are thrilled to announce that Allison Cho, who joined the Multiplatform Desk on a part-time basis after being selected as part of the would-be intern class of 2020, has been promoted to a full-time copy editor at The Post.
Allison has worked on daily stories, numerous enterprise stories and the Local Living section in her year and a half with the organization. She also recently took over the duty of monitoring WebSked in the evening, which involves helping the copy desk prioritize items and working with assignment editors to make sure that files arriving in the evening for next-day publication are handled in a timely manner.
Allison graduated from the University of Missouri, where she majored in journalism and minored in business.
