It was a blue Christmas for former Washington Times defense reporter Kristina Wong. She was one of the unfortunate journos axed during John Solomon‘s re-org last month. But things are looking up in the New Year. Lat Monday she was hired as a staff writer for The Hill covering defense and politics, and today is her first day on the job. She will also be contributing to The Hill‘s defense blog, DefCon Hill (@DefConHill). Kristina is taking over for Carlo Munoz, who left the pub to freelance and do more “boots on the ground stuff,” and finish a Master’s degree at Georgetown University.
Congratulations to Kristina on the quick recovery! And here’s hoping similar fortunes await her former TWT colleagues.
