Emily Miller Joins TWT

Human Events Senior Editor Emily Miller is going to work for TWT. Her title is Senior Editor of the Editorial and Opinion pages. She’ll continue to work out of an office on Capitol Hill.

In April of 2010, Miller left Politics Daily for TWT as a freelancer. In August she moved again when she began her job for Human Events.

So she’s well acquainted with the team that includes Editorial Page Editor Brett Decker, Dave Mastio, Richard Diamond, James Robbins, Anneke Green, Kerry Picket and Frank Perley.

“We are thrilled to have Emily Miller bring her unique behind-the-scenes perspective of politics to The Washington Times Opinion pages,” said Decker in a statement. “Emily has worked at the highest levels of power in Washington, and she brings that wealth of insider knowledge and experience to her reporting.”

Congratulations to Miller!
