Marty Kady, editor of Politico Pro, sent out the following announcement on Wednesday:
We’re thrilled to be able to announce that we have filled the Pro Technology newsletter gig with one of our rising stars on the breaking news desk: Cristiano Lima. Cristiano’s byline has graced the top of POLITICO’s pages regularly for the past year on many of the biggest breaking news stories of the Trump era. We’re happy he’ll bring that quick metabolism to our technology policy newsletter, writing about everything from Facebook’s privacy crisis to the FCC’s political fights. In addition to being a breaking news reporter, he has contributed to Morning Media and California Playbook and did a stint as a senior web producer. A Brazilian-American journalist, Cristiano previously worked as a TV producer and reporter for Al Jazeera and Pennsylvania’s WFMZ, a radio host for local NPR-affiliate WDIY, a researcher for Media Matters and an intern for various other outlets. He’s a two-time graduate of Lehigh University, earning both a Master’s in 2016 as a Community Fellow and a Bachelor’s in 2013 in politics and policy.
Please join us in welcoming Cristiano to Pro!
