Politico’s Deputy Managing Editor Tim Grieve sends an internal memo to staff bearing the subject line: We’ve been scooped! And guess who scooped them? But the love is fleeting. Soon Grieve takes to cheerleading Politico‘s new energy team. Now, if he just had pom poms.

Fishbowl just broke the news that  Darren Goode is leaving The Hill to
join us at POLITICO.

It’s big news — Darren is a major league energy reporter — but it’s
only half of the story.

With Darren’s arrival next month, POLITICO will clearly have
Washington’s most dominant energy-reporting team.
Darren Samuelsohn,
Josh Voorhees, Robin Bravender and Darren Goode would each be the ace of
any other line-up. We’ve got all four of them on ours.

Position for position, no one else in Washington can match our energy
team.
And we’re not done yet; energy editor Dan Berman and I will have
more hires to announce soon.

Stay tuned, and say hello to Darren when he arrives next month.
