Morning Consult Adds 3

Among them, CQ Roll Call's managing editor.

Morning-ConsultPolling and media firm Morning Consult starts the new year by bringing on three editorial staff hires, announced editor in chief Meghan McCarthy in an email to staff this morning. Details are below:

  • Cameron Easley is the new, and first, managing editor for Morning Consult. He comes over from CQ Roll Call, where he had also been managing editor.
  • Jack Fitzpatrick, who will cover energy, comes to Morning Consult from National Journal, where he was a staff correspondent and reported on House races for NJ Hotline.
  • Ryan Rainey will cover finance for Morning Consult. He joins from Inside U.S. Trade, where he focused on coverage of congressional fast-tracking of the TPP as well as the trade agreement itself.

For Morning Consult, the beginning of 2016 looks a lot like 2015, in which the company grew its staff from 12 to over 30, outgrowing its old office and moving to a shiny new HQ near the White House.
