It’s Official: Hounshell to Politico, Where He’ll Be Glasser’s Deputy

It’s a done deal.

Blake Hounshell, who resigned from FP last week, is going to work for Politico as his former boss’s deputy. That’s right, Susan Glasser was his boss at FP. She, too, recently resigned to go to work for Politico to head up an aggressive longform journalism operation.

HuffPost‘s Michael Calderone got his paws on the memo first from Editor-in-Chief John Harris. FishbowlDC first hinted at the news a few days ago. “He’s a wonderful editor, a nonstop ideas machine — and a round-the-clock tweeter: basically the perfect metabolism for POLITICO,” said Glasser in the memo.

Hounshell begins his new job Monday.
