BuzzFeed’s Rebecca Berg to Washington Examiner (and Other Recent Hires)

The new political and policy-minded Washington Examiner won’t be heavily promoting its new product until September. But in the meantime, they have some new hires. The most recent of which is Rebecca Berg, formerly of BuzzFeed and before that, an intern for The New Yorker and NYT. Berg went to work for BuzzFeed less than a year ago.

By the way, they’ve dropped italicized “The” from their logo, so they’re now simply the Washington Examiner.

Berg starts Monday as a political correspondent. She joins an interesting cast of new hires and staff of 40 that includes TWT‘s Luke Rosiak, Susan Crabtree and Sean Lengell as well as CQ Roll Call‘s David Drucker, Politico‘s Tim Mak, RealClearPoliticsJoseph Lawler, Heritage Foundation’s Ashe Schow, and Daily Beast‘s Justin Green. There are three reporters from the Examiner newspaper: Chief Congressional Correspondent Susan Ferrechio, White House correspondent Brian Hughes and congressional correspondent Steve Contorno. Others: designers Karen Lomax (Lomax Creative) and Chris Henderson (YourHealth Magazine); videographer Lisa Ruhl (Discovery Studios); and web producer Meghana Kurup (Stars and Stripes).

Congratulations to all.
