Washington Times editorial-page editor resigns
Brett Decker, who has led the development of the print and online versions of the The Washington Times’ Commentary section since 2009, resigned Wednesday as the paper’s editorial-page editor.
Washington Times President and CEO Larry Beasley praised Mr. Decker’s work with The Times, which included overseeing the paper’s in-house editorials and its stable of contributors to the Commentary section, which feature some of the nation’s most prominent conservative officials and thinkers. Previous editors of the section have included such leading figures as Tony Snow and Tony Blankley.
“We appreciate Brett’s contributions in furthering The Times’ reputation as a leading voice of conservative thought and opinion, and I want to reassure you that The Times will continue to build on that reputation as we adapt to serve our readers in today’s fast-changing digital news environment,” Mr. Beasley said in a note to company employees Wednesday.
A graduate of Albion College, Mr. Decker was an editorial-page writer and editor for The Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong before coming to The Washington Times three years ago. Prior to that, he had worked at the Export-Import Bank and the Pentagon Federal Credit Union, and was a speechwriter for then-House Majority Whip Tom DeLay, Texas Republican.
Mr. Beasley said the company has begun a nationwide search for a new editorial-page editor. Richard Diamond, currently the Commentary section’s managing editor, will serve for now as acting editorial-page editor.
