Zuckman to Obama Administration

Chicago Tribune’s Jill Zuckman joins President Obama’s administration as the Department of Transportation’s director of public affairs and assistant to Secretary Ray LaHood.

Zuckman was a Washington-based correspondent at the Tribune and also made frequent appearances on MSNBC and Fox News.

She is the second Tribune reporter to take a job in the administration. Peter Gosselin is now the chief speech writer for Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. This move is somewhat of a trend- Jay Carney, formerly of Time Magazine, is now Vice President Biden’s communications director and CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta is supposedly among the top picks to become the next surgeon general.
