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

Greetings colleagues,

I’m pleased to announce two new faces at BGOV, though one of them is already familiar in the newsroom.

Skye Witley is Bloomberg Government’s new agriculture reporter. Starting Monday, he’ll cover a dynamic beat centered on the farm bill and encompassing food policy, food safety, foreign land ownership, the increasing use of AI and other technology in agriculture, trade, and much more. He joins BGOV from a year and half at BLAW where he’s impressed with scoops and high-impact coverage of privacy and cybersecurity on the IP/Tech team. Prior to joining INDG, he was an intern at Axios and covered the Colorado congressional delegation for The Durango Herald as an intern Washington correspondent. He’s from the other Washington (state) but has called Washington, DC home since he arrived to study at American University in 2019. He earned a bachelor’s degree there, majoring in journalism. When not reporting, Skye likes to run and just ran his first marathon … in France. On Sunday afternoons, look for him reading at the National Arboretum.

Greg Tourial will join Bloomberg Government on May 6 as a legislative analyst. Greg comes from CQ Roll Call, where he’s part of the House Action Reports team, writing summaries of bills and amendments debated by the House. At BGOV, Greg will write bill summaries and OnPoints and help bring details of legislation to our subscribers. He’s been at CQ as a researcher and reporter for nearly nine years. Previously Greg was an editor at International Affairs Review and a graduate fellow in the Senate. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Georgia in international relations and history and a master’s degree from George Washington University in Russian, Central European, East European and Eurasian Studies. Greg and his wife have two cats named C.J. and Donna after characters from the West Wing. And he was once mistaken for a tour guide while visiting Pompeii because another group saw him following a map he’d printed and (incorrectly) assumed he knew what he was talking about.

Please help me congratulate Skye and welcome Greg.
