The Hill Finds ‘Hillicon Valley’ Replacement, hires a Copy Editor and Promotes Intern

There are new hires at The Hill says this internal memo just sent out this morning by Editor Hugo Gurdon. He says there are more on the way.

The memo:

I am pleased to be able to tell you of three more newsroom hires.

Gautham Nagesh, of The Daily Caller and previously of Government Executive, is joining us as a blogger/reporter on Hillicon Valley. Gautham, who starts work next Monday (May 10) brings an impressive understanding of policy and a strong instinct for competitive news reporting. I am confident that with him and Tony Romm working together, the blog will go from strength to strength.

We are being joined, too, by Cathryn Kulat, who will start work here as a copy editor on May 13. Cathryn, who previously worked at The Washington Times, brings our copy desk up to strength as The Hill’s output grows in volume and variety.

Finally, Jordan Fabian, who has been working at The Hill for nearly a year whilst on a Collegiate Network internship, will join the newsroom staff in June. He’ll continue to blog at the Briefing Room, which he has helped build into one of the most-visited political news sites in Washington.

More hires are on the way; I’ll let you know about them as soon as possible.
