Roll Call is losing one of their finest reporters to the Washington Post. Scott Montgomery announced to the newsroom tonight that Emily Heil is leaving the publication after more than four years to join WaPo’s national staff, where she will work with Al Kamen on the “In the Loop” column.
In an email announcing her departure, Emily said “It’s been an honor to be part of Team Roll Call. More than colleagues, you have been fierce friends, co-conspirators, mentors, sounding boards, and inspirations.”
Heil joined Roll Call in early 2007 to take over the “Heard on the Hill” franchise. She penned the column for three and a half years with Anna Palmer as a co-pilot and later, with Beth Brotherton. Congrats to Emily and to WaPo!
