David Eldridge Leaves TWT for Roll Call

In a letter to staff, Roll Call editor-in-chief Christina Bellantoni announced yesterday the hiring of David Eldridge away from The Washington Times, where he had been assistant editor on the politics desk.* She also announced several promotions and newsroom re-organizations.

Eldridge, who starts his new gig on March 31st, will now serve as Roll Call‘s House editor. He will work with Emma Dumain, Dan Newhouser, and Matt Fuller on the “218″ blog, and be their main point of contact for short and long-term projects. He comes to Roll Call amidst a transition for the paper. Bellantoni herself started a mere 8 weeks ago, and a major re-org had already happened right before she arrived. That blueprint was augmented somewhat by the sudden departure of Peter Anthony last week, and now, with a flurry of promotions and the hiring of Eldridge, Bellantoni is attempting to right the ship.

Eldridge is leaving an arguably more troubled paper, also in the midst of major renovation. TWT Editor John Solomon has been trying to reinvent his conservative daily as a multimedia investigative enterprise since he was brought on last summer.

There were more adjustments and promotions announced yesterday as well, though they are a bit too numerous for us to regurgitate here. For more detail on the latest Roll Call re-org, check out Bellantoni’s letter to staff, after the jump.

*Update 2:49: This post previously said that David Eldridge was most recently the managing editor of TWT‘s website. That was inaccurate. Though he was once the managing editor of the website, he is now assistant editor on the politics desk. The current managing editor of the site is Ian Bishop.

Politico Reporter Gets Shingles, Blames Self-Induced Stress

Poor Politico Pro transportation reporter Adam Snider. His doctor has diagnosed him with Shingles, a condition that typically afflicts the elderly, the stressed and overworked and can hit anyone who ever had an bad case of Chicken Pox as a child. Stressed and overworked reflects Snider’s state of being.

“It’s a mild case, I’m working today without much pain and I have no plans to lighten my workload,” Snider told FishbowlDC. “A lot of the stress is self-induced since I want to be the best reporter I can be. I’d also like to note that this is the best job I’ve ever had. And yes, I’m saying that without an angry boss breathing down my neck.”

On Twitter, the reporter points to his job as one source of his Shingles.

But he had something to add about that.

Sympathy being rampant in Washington, Bloomberg BNA‘s Ari Natter asks, “That’s not contagious, is it?” Snider assures Natter not to worry about him catching it since he’s not on Capitol Hill today. But as a matter of fact, Shingles is contagious, especially to those who’ve never had Chicken Pox. So for the time being, no kissing Snider. Hand holding, canoodling and whispering sweet nothings are fine.

Roll Call‘s Emma Dumain, more focused on facts, asks, “Can we add ‘Working for Politico’ to the list of ’causes’ of shingles on Web MD?”

We hope he feels better soon.

CQ’s Dumain to Roll Call
