Yahoo News Hires Its First White House Correspondent

Longtime Agence France-Press political writer Olivier Knox has joined Yahoo News as the site’s first White House correspondent. Knox spent more than a decade at AFP and covered the White House for eight years. He will report to politics editor Chris Suellentrop.

Interesting, given Yahoo’s fairly meteoric growth in news content production in recent years, they’re just now getting a White House correspondent. Here’s hoping an enterprise investigative team comes next.

Knox, obviously, will be based in DC and will formally start his new job on February 13.
