After more than three years of writing Roll Call‘s “Heard on the Hill” column, Emily Heil is passing the torch to Ali McSherry. McSherry will join Elizabeth Brotherton on the HOH beat while Heil spreads her wings as a features writer. Memo from Charlie Mitchell announcing the musical beats below:
Folks, I’m happy to announce a few beat changes that should lead to great benefits all around.
After three-plus years as the senior Heard on the Hill writer, Emily Heil is going to take on a broader writing and reporting portfolio for Roll Call. Emily has sparkled in the HOH beat, filling the page and website with scoops, celebrity foibles and generally great dish.
As a feature writer, she will more fully explore the people and personalities of Capitol Hill, and will add a different perspective to our coverage of great happenings in our midst.
And fear not, HOH will be in good hands. After two-plus years working on the HOH team, Elizabeth Brotherton will step into the lead role. Beth is already an accomplished sleuth — and a terrific feature writer. She will continue to lend HOH the unique voice that makes it such an important part of Roll Call.
Beth will be joined on the HOH team by Ali McSherry, whose Office Space profiles, reviews and campus and neighborhood stories have been mainstays of the Around the Hill section for the past year and a half. Ali is quite the sleuth in her own right and I know she is going to prosper in her new role.
Join me in congratulating Emily, Beth and Ali on their new roles. And keep sharing those tips!
