NJ’s ‘The Hotline’s’ Sullivan to WaPo’s The Fix

NJ “The Hotline’s” Sean Sullivan is moving over to WaPo to join Chris Cillizza’s Fix team.

“We’re obviously sad to see him go, but it’s also meant some well-deserved promotions on the Hotline team,” NJ Publicist Taylor West told FishbowlDC.

In the wake of Sullivan’s departure, promotions are abound: Julie Sobel will assume his former roll as editor of Hotline On Call; Tim Alberta, who has been editor of Hotline Last Call, is being promoted to senior editor, with Sarah Mimms being promoted to be his deputy editor. Kevin Brennan is stepping up as well, to senior writer.

“Our best wishes are with Sean – always great to see Hotline alums spread out throughout Washington – and we’re excited about the new roles our talent here are taking on,” West added.

What we know and what we’re reading this Tuesday morning…



Boston Globe: Management and the paper’s largest union were in intense talks last night, trying to end a bitter standoff that is costing the union’s members nearly one-fourth of their paychecks. What was supposed to be an informational session appears to have turned into a bargaining session.

E&P: It is the spring of Twitter, after the winter of Facebook, and nearly a decade of blogging. So how are newspapers handling a lot of this newfangled social media madness? Many editors are still not sure how to police the growing Twitter trend and Facebook “friending” phenomenon.


Carlos Watson gets the 11am hour on MSNBC. He officially joined dayside in March and debuted at 11 yesterday. TVNewser reports it appears the morning line-up is set, with Dylan Ratigan anchoring 9-11am and Dr. Nancy Snyderman at noon.

Campbell Brown‘s ratings hit a new low on CNN. TVNewser has the numbers.

CNN colleague Rick Sanchez took the #CNNfail criticism head-on yesterday: “There have been some questions raised on Twitter as to whether we covered any of the events enough over the weekend,” he said. “Frankly, it’s a compliment that you expected us to cover it more than our competitors, and we did.”

Politico reports on how the White House press stays home for Obama’s speech. “While reporters sometimes skip short fundraising-only trips or journeys in the waning days of a presidency, it’s hard to remember a time when a president, in the prime of his presidency, traveled outside Washington for a major policy address just to have the press stay home… The reason for the change is simple: money.”
