10 Bylines We Love for Superficial Reasons

Unknown

What’s in a name? Well, quite a lot when it comes to a journalist’s byline. So here we’re being shamelessly superficial as we pick out those names in Washington journalism that we like just because of the way they look on paper or sound.

Politico Pro Education On the Way

Pro Education, a division of Politico Pro, starts Wednesday. It’s one of three Politico Pro sections to be unveiled in the coming months. The others include Pro Agriculture and Pro Trade, which will launch in October.

Pro Education will be headed up by Education Editor Nirvi Shah, who joins Pro from Education Week.

It’s not quite as sexy as defense or even tech policy. But, then again, we keep hearing about this impending student loan crisis, so… maybe.
