The Atlantic Hooks Politico’s Ball

Politico‘s Molly Ball is headed to The Atlantic, where she will be a staff writer covering national politics for TheAtlantic.com. Before Politico she was a reporter for the Las Vegas-Review Journal and Las Vegas Sun. She attended Yale. Past reporting jobs have led her to Ohio, Pennsylvania, Cambodia and to the NYT and WaPo.

“Molly’s experience as a fast-moving political reporter will be a big benefit to our 2012 coverage,” said Editorial Director of Atlantic Digital Bob Cohn. “The voice and clarity she brings to her writing, combined with her instinct for cut-through-the-clutter analysis, make her a great fit at The Atlantic.”

Ball will work closely with channel editor Garance Franke-Ruta. Her first day is October 3.

Congratulations to Ball.
