Ryan Teague Beckwith is leaving Roll Call for Digital First Media’s Project Thunderdome to take on their political coverage. As many know, CQ Roll Call faced some 30 layoffs this week. Most involved business side employees, but Washington’s longtime Capitol Hill journalist, Richard E. Cohen, was shockingly in the mix. Beckwith came to Roll Call in June of 2009. In April of 2011 he was named Features Editor after Debbie Bruno (a.k.a. Bebbi Druno) left. Among Beckwith’s claims to fame is that he has a fan in Big Boi from Outkast, who follows him on Twitter, and remarked that it was “because u give real facts.”
In other job moves, Alex Finland, a producer for Fox News Sunday, is departing to go to work for Craft Media.
