Colbert I. King

Colbert I. King

Known for his provocative, insightful commentary in one of the world’s most influential  newspapers, Colbert King is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and an engaging speaker on a host of national, international and social issues.

King is the deputy editorial page editor of The Washington Post and also one of the newspaper’s regular columnists. In his column, he brings a unique focus to the people whom are not among the powerful politicos of the nation’s capital and often suffer from neglect and abuse. As the Post’s editorial page editor, Fred Hiatt, said, “He writes about people who otherwise would get ignored, people who don’t have much of a voice. He holds officials accountable. He shines a pretty powerful spotlight.”

He doesn’t come from a conventional journalism background and, as a result, Colby King brings a varied perspective and expertise on many of the critical issues of the day.
