Fishbowl5 + 1 with (Now) CNN’s Maeve Reston

Another big get for CNN Digital Politics today. Maeve Reston, the LA Times political reporter and brains behind #campaignfashionreport, is joining the likes of Peter Hamby and Chris Moody at CNN Digital Politics.  In her new gig she will remain in LA, where she will write big-picture political stories, report on the intersection of Hollywood, politics and money, and contribute to both the net’s television and digital video coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign.  Rather than posting another boring memo, we decided to ask Maeve a few questions for our Fishbowl5 feature.

get-attachment.aspxWhat’s it like to report on politics 3,000 miles from DC?

Incredibly refreshing. If I had my way, political reporters wouldn’t have desks – just a laptop, an aircard, and the freedom to roam the country finding the best stories.

Who gets more starstruck: politicians meeting movie stars, or movie stars meeting politicians?

Depends on the caliber of the politician and the caliber of the celebrity. Generally the politicians try to play it cool, while the celebrities are more honest about being starstruck.

CNN Digital Politics Hires Metzler from U.S. News

unnamed2

The digital hiring spree in CNN’s Washington bureau continues today with news that Rebekah Metzler will exit U.S. News & World Report for a gig at CNN. Currently a senior news editor, Metzler will take the role of breaking news editor for CNN Digital Politics.

For those of you counting, Metzler is CNN Digital Politics’ 200,698th hire in the past two months. I kid. But it seems that way, no?

Since poaching Politico‘s Rachel Smolkin and naming her executive editor this summer, the network has really been bulking up their digital team. You may recall that in addition to Smolkin, CNN snagged three more from Politico – Steven SloanJedd Rosche and Eric Bradner.  They also made big name hires like Chris Moody from Yahoo!, Ashley Codianni from Mashable and Stephen Collinson from AFP, as well as reporters and digital producers from WaPo, The Hill and C-SPAN.

HuffPost’s Jon Ward Set to Join Yahoo News

Jon-Ward-pictureAfter 3.5 years with The Huffington Post, Jon Ward is headed to Yahoo News as a senior political correspondent, POLITICO’s Hadas Gold reported Monday.

Yahoo News’ editor-in-chief Megan Liberman told POLITICO, ”Jon has it all — great reporting and storytelling instincts, deep sources, a talent for writing distinctive, news-making stories, the respect and admiration of his peers. We are thrilled to have him join Yahoo’s growing news and politics team.”

Ward shared with Fishbowl via email, “Every time I talked with someone from Yahoo, from Megan to Danny to Garance to Matt and on, I was struck by much of a common mission we have, to try to craft stories that are interesting, different (yet on or connected to the news) and well told. They’ve got quality journalists like Olivier and Chris and Meredith who I know and have worked with in the past, and big names like Katie Couric and Mike Isikoff who are doing high impact stories on a national and international scale. I feel like they’re in a unique position and trying to build something really unique, with a CEO who is being really aggressive in trying to position the company for growth and success. I’m just excited to be part of it.”
