An internal notice, obtained by FishbowlDC:

    Several staff shifts to announce: First, Jessica Brady is moving from the Features position to the Leadership Team to help cover the Senate. She will work with Erin Billings and provide spot news coverage for the Web, as well as in-depth stories for the Web and paper. Ali McSherry will move full time into the Features role, promising even more Mug Shots for our thirsty readers. Ali will be working with Debbie Bruno. Finally, Tim Taylor has expressed a desire to learn the ins and outs of newspapering, and will move into the editorial assistant position to work with Debbie on features and other story assignments, and to work with the copy and production teams. These changes will formally take effect when the lame-duck sessions ends, but we are hoping to have people in their new roles by the week of Dec. 15.
