Roll Call’s Starkey Moves Back to CQ

Roll Call web editor Melanie Starkey is moving to CQ to begin a new role as editor for daily news.  In an email announcing the transition, Susan Benkelman called Starkey a “solid editor with great news judgment and an unflappable disposition.”

Prior to her most recent gig, Starkey was a copy editor and web producer for CQ. Before joining the company, she was a Sunday/Monday news editor at the St. Petersburg Times, and before that a copy editor for the paper. Congrats to Melanie!
