CQ-Roll Call Hires Two Politics Reporters

An internal memo from Scott Montgomery, Director of Consumer Publishing for CQ-Roll Call Group, reveals two new hires for CQ-Roll Call Politics.

The memo reads:

We are thrilled to announce two terrific additions to the CQ-Roll Call politics team.

Steve Peoples will be joining us from the Providence Journal in Rhode Island. Steve is an exceptional government and politics reporter who has proven himself equally adept at source-building and database journalism. Steve knows how to break news, and weÂ’re excited to have him join the politics reporting team as we close in on the mid-term elections. HeÂ’s relocating from Providence and will be with us before monthÂ’s end.

Tricia Miller came to Roll Call two years ago with a single goal in mind. She wanted to be a politics reporter. Tricia had worked as an embed on the John Edwards presidential campaign for NBC and National Journal and before that she was a contributor to the Almanac of American Politics. Now at Roll Call, we’re looking forward to putting TriciaÂ’s natural enthusiasm and commitment to work for the section.

Please join us in welcoming these new members to the team.

Where Are They Now? Campaign Embeds Relive the Trail’s Glory Days

Ana Marie Cox moderated a panel discussion with former 2008 presidential campaign embed reporters at GWU this week, in conjunction with Campus Progress and the Institute for Politics.

The first panel was made up of ABC’s Bret Hovell, former NBC embed turned “Colbert Report” researcher Adam Aigner-Treworgy, Newsweek‘s Nick Summers and former Biden embed turned RealClearPolitics White House reporter Mike Memoli.

NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell, former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer Jamie Smith and former McCain campaign staffer Justin Germany rounded out the second panel.

We learned they can identify hotel chains by just the carpet, they gained and lost a second freshman fifteen, supplied campaign staffers with booze (something O’Donnell calls “a great journalism tradition”) and even managed to break some news along the way…

But would they do it again? They all agreed it’d be hard to beat the historic nature of the ’08 campaign, but answers were mixed on whether they’d go back.

“You swear you’ll never do it again, but there is a certain sexiness to being out there,” Summers said. Germany’s also in, “it’s the Superbowl of politics.” Hovell was a hard no.

Among those not receiving GWU credit to attend… Congress Daily‘s Erin McPike who covered the Romney campaign for NBC and the National Journal, msnbc.com’s Carrie Dann who was embeded in Iowa for NBC/NJ, Roll Call‘s Tricia Miller who covered the Edwards campaign for NBC/NJ and WaPo‘s Perry Bacon.

Happy Birthday To…

Shira Toeplitz! Friends of the Roll Call reporter gathered at Johnny’s Half Shell last night to celebrate.

In attendance: Erin McPike, Elizabeth Brotherton, Ali McSherry, Jessica Brady, Kasie Hunt, Carrie Dann, Anna Edney, John McArdle, Lauren Whittington, Tricia Miller, Reid Wilson, Jared Allen, Alex Isenstadt, Doug Heye, Alex Reese, Shannon Flaherty, Don McGahn, Eric Schultz, Ryan Rudominer, Paul Lindsay, Joanna Burgos, Kara Sidone, Lenny Alcivar, Alex Conant, Amber Wilkerson, Mark Paustenbach, Brendan Martin, Rodell Mollineau, Chris Perkins and Phil Musser.

A friend of the blog points out “there was flack representation from all six campaign committees!”
