The Washington Post has announced 6 new hires and promotions over the last day and a half. The shuffling of reporting talent comes a little less than a month after Executive Editor Marty Baron announced the paper would be making “impressive investments” in the paper’s online resources and expanding its Sunday magazine. The pace of hiring at the paper, which was already brisk, has increased even more since then.

Here’s a rundown of the newest additions and adjustments to the WaPo family:

Jason Millman is joining Wonkblog from Politico. He has also worked at Thompson Publishing Group and The Hill, and will be covering healthcare.

Emily Badger is also joining Wonkblog. Badger, a former WaPo Sports intern-turned-freelance-writer,  was most recently at The Atlantic Cities blog. She will be covering urban policy.

Monica Hesse,  a writer for the Style section and the author of two young adult books, will become an enterprise reporter at the National desk.

Lenny Bernstein will be launching a new health and wellness blog. He previously wrote a fitness column and worked as an editor on the National, Local and Sports desks.

Colby Itkowitz is joining WaPo to help Al Kamen report and write In the Loop. She was most recently Washington correspondent for The Morning Call of Allentown, Pennsylvania.

And Alyssa Rosenberg will be joining the Opinions section as a pop culture blogger. She joins The Post from ThinkProgress.org, where she has been the Features Editor and has her own blog on culture.
