CQ Roll Call Shows Reporter the Door

In some newsrooms it’s the new law of the land. If you’re going to work for a competitor, you’re told to pack your things and get out on the very day you resign.

Such was the case with Keith Perine, an employee for CQ Roll Call until yesterday, when he resigned. He begins his new job as Deputy Tech Editor for Politico Pro tomorrow.

CQ Roll Call is not notorious for this treatment. While they would not comment on Perine’s exact situation, we know that many other reporters who have left the publication are not immediately asked to leave. For instance, Christina Bellantoni, who recently left for PBS, spent at least two weeks at Roll Call before departing. Others have spent even longer time there after they’ve resigned.
