Playbook hears that Fox News Channel’s Washington Bureau is close to naming Bill Sammon vice president & managing editor and Fox veteran Bryan Boughton its Bureau Chief. Sammon, who joined Fox last year, replaces Brit Hume as Managing Editor, a title Hume held along with his anchor position until stepping down in 2008 for an analyst role with the network. DC sources say Sammon’s role will focus on editorial matters and Boughton’s will be nuts and bolts operational.
