From the Post’s internal announcement:
We are pleased to announce that Chuck Babington will be our new telecommunications reporter. Chuck’s aggressive reporting, graceful writing and deep understanding of Washington will help us expand our coverage of this important business and policy beat. Chuck came to the Post in 1991 to cover Montgomery County government. He later moved to the Annapolis statehouse beat, then covered the Clinton White House and Congress, where he chronicled Bill Frist’s struggles as majority leader, the showdown over judicial filibusters and the confirmation of Roberts and Alito. He also wrote for the website and spent two years as the Congressional editor.
Chuck will start his new beat at the beginning of the year. We look forward to his high energy, collegial style and a steady stream of southernisms.
