Bloomberg Government news director Angela Greiling Keane sent out the following on Tuesday morning:

Good morning colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that John Hewitt Jones is joining BGOV as our next Policy team leader. John joins us from FedScoop, a Washington-based tech policy publication where’s he’s been the managing editor. In his new role, John will work with Policy deputy team leader Michaela Ross to lead a team of reporters and editors who cover policy-focused angles of what Congress is doing. John brings experience in a number of the policy areas BGOV covers. Policy focuses this year include reauthorization of the farm bill and FAA bill, and appropriations and defense policy are always key coverage areas for the team.

At FedScoop, John’s team this year won a SABEW award for their coverage of a troubled health record system at the Department of Veterans Affairs. John has also been a senior reporter at Euromoney Institutional Investor in New York City. He began his career as a general news reporter in the U.K., where he wrote for The Sunday Times of London and The Scotsman newspapers. He has a master’s degree in social policy from the London School of Economics.

As a child, he dressed up as a frog and performed at one of London’s leading theaters (where his dad still plays the cello). There may or may not be photographic evidence of said performances. John also has a beautiful, but enormous, Catahoula leopard dog, which he and his wife adopted from North Carolina. He’ll start Sept. 11 and report to Loren Duggan. Connect with him onLinkedIn here.
