An internal memo from The Hill’s Editor Hugo Gurdon:
I’m pleased to be able to tell you of two more hires that will continue the growth of our newsroom.
Sara Jerome is joining us from National Journal, where she is a technology reporter. She arrives next Monday, May 24, and will become the third staff writer working on the Hillicon Valley blog.
Then, on June 7, we will be joined by Mike Lillis, who will be our second healthcare reporter/blogger. Mike is currently a reporter at the Washington Independent and before that was at Inside CMS.
These hires, and others still to come, result from our highly successful expansion into untapped areas of news coverage using innovative online platforms.
