MLex hires Merrion from CQ Roll Call
Longtime Washington business reporter Paul Merrion has been hired by MLEx to help it launch a new service.
In an email Friday to friends, Merrion wrote:
CQ Roll Call. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed covering the data privacy and cybersecurity beat as well as working the great folks here at CQ over the last 16 months or so.
On July 10, I’m starting a new gig as the founder and senior correspondent of White House Watch, a new online publication by MLex Market Insight, a London-based international online business news service owned by LexisNexis. It’s going to be a real adventure. I’ll still be in downtown DC, at 18th and Eye Streets.
Before CQ Roll Call, Merrion was Washington bureau chief for Crain Communications and the Crain’s Chicago Business publication.
A native of Chicago, Merrion graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana with an English major and a minor in mathematics, and he is active in the National Press Club.
