“Margaret is one of the most talented, resourceful and reliable reporters at this newspaper, and I can think of no one better to take on this position,” current Editor-in-Chief Greg Hadley said. “This coming year will be a busy one for The Observer, but under Margaret’s leadership, I am confident it will also be a historic one.”
