BGov Takes Tiron from The Hill

Bloomberg Government has hired The Hill‘s Roxana Tiron. Roxana will join BGOV as a defense reporter on the US Government team which covers the White House, Congress, State Defense and Justice Departments, the Supreme Court, FTC, etc. Specifically she will be reporting on defense policy from legislative, regulatory and business perspectives, ranging from Capitol Hill to federal agencies.

Tiron will join her former colleagues from The Hill: Jeff Young, Jim Snyder and Silla Brush at Bloomberg immediately after the new year.

Birthday Shout-Outs to Trio of Hill Reporters


This week we celebrate the birthdays of three reporters from The Hill. They are Silla Brush (Wednesday), Christina Wilkie (Thursday) and Roxana Tiron (Saturday).

The festivities were set for the Science Club in downtown Washington Thursday night. After leaving Science Club, the revelers went in search of the NBA finals, which they found at the Big Hunt.

> Update: Remarked Wilkie, “Many thanks to all the overworked reporters and significant others who stopped by last night. It feels great to be 24, and it’ll feel even better once my splitting headache subsides.”

The Hill’s Jeff Young Bids Farewell and Prepares for Bloomberg

Celebration-Drinks-600.jpg Scribes and friends gathered Tuesday night at Post Pub for The Hill’s health care guru Jeff Young‘s going away party.

A list of those who turned up last night: Young’s brother, Tim, his girlfriend, Sommer Mathis (who writes the DCist). Only co-workers and former co-workers were invited. (Full Disclosure: I worked with Young for many years and was invited to the soiree. So this post is going to be free of snark because I don’t have a bad thing to say about the guy.)

Jim Snyder, Roxana Tiron, Ian Swanson, Alex Bolton, JT Rushing, Jordan Fabian, Kevin Bogardus, Walter Alarkon, Kim Hart, Sean Miller, Emily Goodin, Sam Youngman, and Silla Brush. Representing The Hill’s alumni were Greenwire’s Mike Soraghan and The Atlantic’s Chris Good. Remarked Young: “My once-and-future colleague Patrick O’Connor broke my heart — not for the first time — by failing to show up and there’s a special place reserved in hell for Jared Allen, who brushed it off to go play sports or something.”

Young reflected on his time at the newspaper.
“It’s been a hell of a ride these past five years, capped off the a year-plus of health care reform insanity,” he wrote to FishbowlDC. “Mostly, there are some people I’m going to miss when I’m gone. (On a smaller scale, I’m really going to miss my Mac and will have to suffer Windows for the first time in years.)

“At the same time, there are only two people left in this news room, not counting Hugo [Gurdon] and Bob [Cusack], who’ve been here longer than I have. That alone might be a sign that it’s time to try something new. I’m also very excited about what we’ve got cooking at Bloomberg and I can’t wait to get started.”

We wish Young the best in his new job.

A FishbowlDC Salute to The Hill‘s Jared Allen

Riddle Me This? How did The Hill manage to get a story about The Hill wrong… er, incomplete?

The Hill receives nine journalism awards

The Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) presented The Hill newspaper with nine journalism awards at the National Press Club on Tuesday night.

The Hill’s Roxana Tiron received first place in the weekly category of business/financial reporting with her article on how Boeing and its congressional supporters used a classified CIA briefing on questionable business practices to discredit a rival.

The Hill’s Kevin Bogardus, who received three awards, nabbed first place in the spot news category for his article on the indictment of former Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska). Bogardus and Business and Lobbying Editor Jim Snyder won first place in the general news category for their report titled, “Bailout Hurts Charities.”

Others at The Hill who were honored for their 2008 articles included Alexander Bolton, Bob Cusack, Jeffrey Young and Sam Youngman.

In 2008, The Hill also received nine SPJ awards.

Okay, let’s tally.

Tiron – 1 award
Bogardus – 2 awards
Bogardus/Snyder – 1 award
Cusack – 1 award
Bolton – 1 award
Young – 1 award
Youngman – 1 award
Total = 8

The headline claiming “nine awards” is accurate however, The Hill managed to overlook their own Jared Allen in the coverage.

That’s why today, FishbowlDC salutes Jared Allen! Jared, you may not be feelin’ the love at work but there’s always a place for you in the fishbowl. We suggest that Hugo and Bob begin planning a cupcake party in your honor.
