Politico’s Kady Details Internal Shuffle

Politico Congressional Editor Martin Kady details the internal shifting of some reporters. He also gives a heartfelt sendoff to Meredith Shiner, who’s going to work for Roll Call. “Meredith has a special place in POLITICO’s heart, starting off here working as Glenn Thrush’s unpaid intern,” Kady wrote, referring to one of Politico‘s White House scribes. “She not only didn’t run screaming from the confines of Thrushworld, she thrived, and quickly made her way into full time reporting.” Kady also gives her props for going to Tucson on two hours notice to cover the Gabby Giffords shooting.

Other changes: Seung Min Kim transfers from the publication’s Arena section to become a congressional reporter. Reid Epstein, a new hire from Newsday, will join Jennifer Epstein and Gregg Birnbaum on the breaking news team. By Labor Day, Reid will relocate to the Congress team. Meanwhile, Erika Lovley moves to the Arena section.

Politico “Doubling Down” Congressional Coverage

Politico’s seeming answer to WaPo’s recent shut down of its Congress blog: add four more scribes to cover Congress and promote a deputy to bureau chief. Marty Kady (known as “Mr. Huddle”) has been promoted to Congressional Bureau Chief from Deputy Congress Editor.

It’s only the beginning of a “new phase of expansion”, says a newsroom source.

In an internal announcement obtained by FishbowlDC this morning, Deputy Managing Editor Tim Grieve announces the “largest expansion” of their “best-in-class” Capitol Hill team since Politico began.

The four reporters and from where they came:

1. Kasie Hunt, a reporter from CongressDaily.

2. James Hohmann, noteably an intern from WaPo and recent Stanford grad. WaPo offered Hohmann a full-time post but he turned it down to come to Politico.

3. Marin Cogan, assistant editor from TNR.

4. Erika Lovley, a reporter from Politico’s own features department.
