In February of last year, Abby Livingston left her gig at NJ‘s Hotline to join “John King, USA.” Now that she’s added CNN producer to her resume, Livingston is on the move again. This time she’s headed to Roll Call as a reporter on the politics team. Memo from Scott Montgomery below:
“We are pleased to announce that Abby Livingston is joining Roll Call as a reporter on our politics team. Abby comes to us from CNN where she is a producer on ‘John King, USA.’ Previously she was TV Editor at The Hotline and worked in the NBC News Washington Bureau as a research assistant to Chuck Todd, where she combed through video archives from the 2008 presidential race to find interesting stories.
After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, Abby set out for a career writing soap operas. But, as she told us, ultimately she discovered “I love politics.” We were impressed by her enthusiasm and tenaciousness. When we asked her to give us some story pitches, she cold-called Sharron Angle. We think she will be an all-around great addition to the newsroom. Abby’s first day will be Oct. 3.”
