Kathryn S. Wenner, a former AJR associate editor, is a copy editor at the Washington Post.     

David M. Shribman, the Boston Globe's Washington bureau chief, is named executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, succeeding John G. Craig Jr., who has been editor for 25 years. Shribman, 48, is a Pulitzer Prize winner who writes a nationally syndicated column and is a frequent panelist on PBS' "Washington Week in Review." "It's a great institution and a great city," Shribman says. "It's a great opportunity for me." Tom Petzinger, a Pittsburgh entrepreneur who was deputy Washington bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal when Shribman was a national political correspondent there in the late '80s and early '90s, calls him "the best writer I ever edited--period" and praises his knowledge of history and "keen eye for community and locale." Craig, who turns 70 in April, will stay on for a transition period after Shribman starts, on February 3. Craig says he wants to become more involved in civic affairs, which he never felt comfortable doing as editor.
