The Hill Loses Blogger to a Job Outside World of Journalism

ericzimmermann.jpg Eric Zimmermann, a blogger for The Hill‘s Briefing Room Blog, is leaving the publication to go to work for the The Benenson Strategy Group as an analyst. Zimmermann has been with the publication just shy of a year and a half. His last day is Friday.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time at The Hill and have learned a lot,” Zimmermann wrote to FishbowlDC. “I just decided journalism wasn’t for me right now. I’m very excited about the opportunity to work at Benenson Strategy Group.”

Since Zimmermann is not leaving for a competing publication, he was not asked to forgo his two-weeks notice and pack up his things within 20 minutes like the last blogger, Tony Romm, who left The Hill for a job at Politico.

Bloggers Mike O’Brien, Jordan Fabian, and Elise Viebeck will pick up the slack and carry on with the Briefing Room blog. Zimmermann has been one of four scribes who write for the blog.
