NYT Taps Coral Davenport for Climate Beat

Coral DavenportWashington-based Coral Davenport will take over the climate and energy beat at The New York Times from John M. Broder. Washington Bureau Chief David Leonhardt explains in a memo posted on Times columnist Andy Revkin‘s Tumblr. Hat tip to Playbook:

Paul Volpe and Bill Hamilton used to work with her. John Broder competed with her. Carl Hulse knew her as a Hill reporter. I was simply one of her readers, and Elisabeth met her only recently. But we all had the same reaction: Coral Davenport is the perfect person to replace John as our climate-and-energy reporter in Washington. After a lunch interview with her, Elisabeth came back to the bureau and pronounced: “We should hire her immediately.”

Hire her we have.

Coral will start next month, joining us from National Journal, where she has written one great story after another. She writes fast and smart for the Web. She breaks news. She writes enterprise and magazine pieces that you read all the way to the end. Above all, she sees climate as a story about everything – politics, economics, foreign policy, science and, of course, the environment.

Before joining National Journal, Coral worked for Congressional Quarterly, Politico and the Daily Hampshire Gazette, in Massachusetts. She has also spent three years as a journalist in Greece. The daughter of a Foreign Service officer, she grew up in Korea, Japan and Greece. Food Club alert: She is a devoted cook who has written many a restaurant review.

Coral arrives the first week in December.

Summer Superlatives Winners, Part III

And the final four…

In a pool of sex machines like The Hill‘s Hugo Gurdon and Daily Caller’s Tucker Carlson it’s tough to imagine anyone winning FishbowlDC’s Sexiest Male of 2011 title by a landslide.  But believe it or not, the boyish good looks of Politico’s Patrick Reis clobbered the competition with over 50% of the popular vote.  Capitol Hill Ken Doll aka Kevin Madden came in a distant second with 16.3% of the vote.  Tucker Carlson, just shy of the silver, trailed Madden by only three votes.

The stress of the spotlight proved too much for Coral Davenport, Amy Harder and Olga Belogolova.  Citing migraines and lack of sleep, NJ’s Energy trio accidentally moved sexy forward when they should have been bringing it back.  The slip bumped them into second place while WUSA-9′s Kristin Fisher took gold and the title of Sexiest Female of 2011 with 38.5% of the vote.  In case you’re wondering, sultry senior seductress Helen Thomas finished third.

The title of Most Underrated went to Ryan Grim of the Huffington Post.  The rock-solid reporter earned 36.61% of the vote, pushing him ahead of Roll Call’s Paul Singer who snagged  a respectable 28.5% of the vote.

Winning by only a hair, Cabbage Patch lookalike and 2011′s Biggest Self-Promoter Matt Mackowiak upset Daily Caller’s Kurt Bardella and stole all the glory with 36.36% of the vote to Bardella’s 34.93%.  Ouch!

Congrats to Reis, Fisher, Grim and Mackowiak!   And there you have the FishbowlDC Class of 2011!

Musical Energy Beat: E&E’s Berman at Politico

More musical chairs on the energy and environment beat… We told you that Roll Call‘s Josh Kurtz was leaving for a gig at E&E Daily. A month ago Coral Davenport took a gig at Politico but has already resigned for a role at National Journal. Now we’re told that after nine years with E&E, Dan Berman has taken a job at Politico.

It’s getting tough to keep them all straight.
