AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The University of Texas at Austin Moody College of Communication has announced an award-winning former editor at The Washington Post will be the new director of its School of Journalism.

The college announced R.B. Brenner’s appointment Thursday.

Brenner served in various capacities for the Post. He was a lead editor on coverage of the Virginia Tech shootings that was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 2008. He also helped lead the merger of the newspaper’s digital and print newsrooms.

Brenner was a visiting lecturer at the School of Journalism in 2009. The Moody College that year honored him with the DeWitt Carter Reddick Award, recognizing excellence in the field of communication.

Brenner currently serves as deputy director of Stanford University’s journalism program. The Stanford Daily named him one of Stanford’s 10 best professors.
