Reuters to Hire 50 in 2014 According to Memo

note_24539-1A memo sent out today by Reuters editor-in-chief Stephen Adler announces that the news agency will hire 50 people in 2014. This comes after the outlet let go 5% of its staff late last year. No word yet if the outlet will revisit hiring former employees. Memo below.

Colleagues –

I’m pleased to share the good news that I’ve been able to approve 50 new hires for 2014. These positions, which will be filled during the course of the year, reflect the recommendations of bureau chiefs, EICs and regional editors. The new hiring will help us fill gaps, increase our strength on some high-priority beats, and help us continue to expand our presence in key emerging markets. The roles are spread across text and visuals, and you’ll see postings for nearly all of them as they become available to be filled.

Best regards,
Steve

Brunch at Hay Adams Concludes WHCD Sh-tstorm

The weather finally cleared up just in time to finish White House Correspondents’ Dinner weekend at the Hay Adams hotel with Thomson Reuters/McLaughlin‘s annual brunch.

Though it was sunny and gorgeous outside, when FBDC hopped on the elevator to head up to the rooftop an attendee asked, “We don’t have to stay the whole time, do we?” We assured her she did not.

The Hill‘s Katy Oczypok was seen snapping photos of guests, and a little later, munching on the brunch fare (sausage, seasoned potatoes, different breads and a tower of fruit). “I think the rain kept a lot of the celebrities in,” she told us with a sigh when asked if she hit up any after parties last night after the WHCD. Cheer up, Oczypok. There’s always next year.

The event was relatively subdued until CBS’ Julie Chen let out a scream. “WE WENT TO USC JOURNALISM SCHOOL TOGETHER!” she said excitedly to her husband as she introduced an apparently long lost college friend.

Notables:

The loudest TV host in Washington,  John McLaughlin, Editor-in-Chief of Reuters Stephen Adler, Author and ex-MSNBCer Pat Buchanan (pictured above wearing what appear to be goggles), Human Events Group Publisher Joe Guerriero accompanied by his wife, and publicist Janet Donovan.

Here’s a dark green sack dress with crystal-studded shoulders and a flaming Mercury Lead Sled splashed across the back.

McLaughlin & Adler to Wrap WHCD Weekend

For those WHCD weekend warriors able to pry themselves out of bed on Sunday morning, John McLaughlin and Reuters EIC Stephen Adler will once again host their annual brunch on the roof terrace of the Hay-Adams Hotel.  The posh event begins at 10.30 am and signals the official close of the weekend’s festivities at 3.00 pm on Sunday, May 1st.

Celebrity and politcal attendees at last year’s brunch included Dennis Quaid, Dana Delany, Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Bo Derek, Tim Daly and Ashley Greene.  Invite only.
