Rick Christie grew up reading and delivering The Palm Beach Post. Now, after a 38-year career in journalism that most recently saw him as the paper’s editorial page editor, he will take over the reins as executive editor of what he considers his hometown paper. Christie, who replaces Nick Moschella as editor, will become the first Black person to lead the publication in its 104-year history.
“We’re thrilled to have someone of Rick’s journalistic caliber and deep knowledge of the community as the next editor of the Palm Beach Post,” said Amalie Nash, senior vice president of the USA TODAY Network, which includes the Post and more than 20 other publications in Florida. “It was immediately evident that Rick has a strong vision and believes in the importance of local news.
