From Roll Call Editor Charlie Mitchell’s internal announcement, obtained by FishbowlDC:
I am pleased to announce that Debra Bruno will be joining us as our new Features Editor. Most recently Debbie was a senior editor at Legal Times, where she directed the paper’s business and lobbying coverage, and oversaw a staff of five reporters. Debbie also edited the paper’s cultural section, “After Hours,” covering the D.C. music, art, theater, wining and dining scenes, and is an award-winning columnist in her own right. Many of you had a chance to meet Debbie last week â€¹ so you know she is already churning out ideas for the Around the Hill section and Web site. We are all eager for Debbie to get started, especially her former Legal Times colleague Ted Goldman, who has done an outstanding job over the past few weeks as interim Around the Hill editor.
Debbie’s first day will be Aug. 12.
