Roll Call is on a roll.  Over the last few weeks, the newsgroup has been turning frowns upside down by announcing more hires than resignations.  Way to go, guys!

Via internal memo today, Scott Montgomery welcomed Amanda Becker to Roll Call’s influence team where she’ll work as an ethics and investigations reporter.  Becker is currently a legal affairs and business reporter, covering law and lobbying for WaPos weekly Capitol Business section.  Amanda previously covered the business of law for the Los Angeles Daily Journal, completed a fellowship at the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and worked with the investigative team at the Los Angeles Times on a public health project.

Becker begins on May 2nd.  Congrats to Amanda!
