Hand-me-downs at The Hill: Three Degrees to Intern

How many degrees of separation between a Senate reporter and an intern at The Hill newspaper? We count three. Bolton to Alarkon to Jacobs to intern.

The Hill’s Alex Bolton is moving on up…to the upper chamber, that is. Bolton accepted a gig as full-time Senate reporter, leaving a finance beat vacancy for Walter Alarkon.

Alarkon’s Briefing Room blog spot will be passed down to new hire Jeremy Jacobs, who worked as an intern at The Hill two years ago.

I just need the name of an intern and my oracle will be complete…

Also worth noting: Rocky Mountain News reporter Bridget Johnson will fill the online editor position vacated by Klaus Marre last week.

UPDATE: Rob Runyan (intern) was the missing link – my circle is complete! If you see Rob today, be especially nice. After all, he may be three or less degrees from taking your job.

Special thanks to my charming tipster.
