From an internal CQ announcement, obtained by FishbowlDC:
Folks: I am sorry to report that Mike Crittenden has announced his intention to leave CQ to join the Washington Bureau of the Dow Jones Newswires where he will be covering economic issues, including movements in the nation’s leading economic indicators and spot news. Three years ago, Mike brought to CQ solid experience covering financial services at SNL Financial, a newsletter for investment bankers and other professionals. He used that knowledge to pursue informed stories that benefited our readers. His prescient Weekly cover story on subprime lending on April 23 dug into the problem before many policy makers had recognized its ramifications. He also was our lead reporter on the GSE overhaul, pension law and the rewrite of the nation’s bankruptcy regulations. His collaborative nature and friendship will be greatly missed. Mike’s last day will be September 20. Please join me in wishing him well.
