Good afternoon Politicos!
We have two major hiring announcements for Pro today.
First, we’re thrilled to announce that Jane Norman, a veteran policy editor who has spent the past eight years at CQ, will be joining Pro as a multi-vertical editor, with primary oversight of our Pro Education team, as well as senior editing oversight of the Budget and Appropriations team. Jane is currently the policy editor managing budget and appropriations coverage at CQ, and she has edited multiple policy areas in the past. Before CQ, Jane was a Washington correspondent for The Des Moines Register and a reporter in Iowa for the paper as well. She’s covered everything from the butter cow at the Iowa State Fair to the Iowa presidential caucuses to the drafting of the health care law. She’s a native of Illinois and a graduate of the Drake University School of Journalism and Mass Communication in Des Moines. Jane starts Sept. 5.
Second, we have a big hire on the Pro Agriculture team. Christine Haughney, who has spent more than 15 years working for newspapers including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post, will join the team as the primary Morning Agriculture newsletter writer. Christine has developed a specialty in food and agriculture policy in recent years, and just spent the past year developing a six-part investigative television series about global food safety that is streaming in early 2018. She’s a graduate of Wellesley College and has a Masters in journalism from Columbia. Christine starts Sept. 12.
