The Hill is expanding its events operation by hiring an events manager and external relations expert. This is separate from former publicist Tricia Barba, whom the publication employed last year and has yet to replace. She left her position in March and now works for the Liaison Hotel on Capitol Hill.

In an internal memo this morning, Publisher Francine McMahon sent this note to staff telling them to be sure to welcome Nicole Rodgers, the new Manager of Events and External Relations.
