It’s a natural fit.
Before going to work for WaPo on Al Kamen‘s “In the Loop” column, Emily Heil worked at Roll Call where she covered features as well as wrote HOH, the publication’s Capitol Hill gossip column. Before that, she covered the gossip beat for The Hill with a column that no longer exists called “Under the Dome.”
And now that Amy Argetsinger is pregnant and moving on to a more family friendly beat, Heil is sliding into gossip once again as she replaces Argetsinger at “Reliable Sources.”
Rest assured, with Heil soon at the helm, things are bound to improve. It’s WaPo — so they won’t let her take that many risks — but up is the only direction things can go.
