Sammon and Boughton Promoted at FNC D.C. Bureau

sammon_2-26.jpgPolitico has the memo from FNC’s EVP John Moody announcing the promotion of two FNC executives in D.C.

Bill Sammon becomes a VP of Fox News and Washington managing editor. “Assuming the title held by Brit Hume is daunting, but Bill, who has been Deputy M.E. for the past six months, has brought energy, leadership and inspired thinking to the office every day,” says the memo. “As Managing Editor, Bill has ultimate authority on editorial matters in Washington. He will report to me.”

Bureau manager Bryan Boughton has been promoted to Washington bureau chief. “Bryan led our coverage through the 2008 presidential campaign, the conventions, election night and the Obama Administration’s rise to power,” said the memo.

In August 2008, both Sammon and Boughton assumed their previous roles.
