NJ‘s Megan Scully, a longtime defense reporter, is joining CQ Roll Call. Apparently her new colleagues are excited. “She rocks!” gushed Christina Bellantoni.

Fun fact: Scully used to work in a part of The Hill‘s first office suite called “the sauna.”

Congratulations to Scully.

See the internal memo…

To the news staff:

I’m happy to announce that Megan Scully will be joining our newsroom to cover defense policy.

Megan comes to us from National Journal, where she’s covered the beat for the past six years. Before that, she worked for several defense publications including Defense News and Inside the Army. She is a graduate of American University (journalism).

Her decade of experience covering defense issues, and in particular her keen understanding of the Capitol Hill-Pentagon relationship, make Megan a great fit for CQ. Please join us in welcoming her to the defense and foreign policy team on Oct. 11.

Susan
