From their announcement:
I am pleased to announce that I have hired two more staff reporters.
Mike Soraghan, who has spent the past six years as Washington Correspondent for The Denver Post, will start in our newsroom on Monday, covering the House Democrats with Jonathan Kaplan. Mike’s resume is peppered with journalism prizes; he won the 2005 National Press Club Washington Correspondence Award, and the Washington Correspondent 2004 Washington SPJ Dateline Award. He was also one of The Denver Post reporters who participated in that newspaper’s Pulitzer Prize-winning staff entry in 2000 for coverage of the Columbine High School massacre. As you will understand, I am delighted that Mike will now be reporting on Capitol Hill for us.
The second reporter, Kevin Bogardus will start work with us on March 1 after three years as at the Center for Public Integrity. Kevin will join our Business & Lobbying staff and will cover the lobbying industry.
These hires continue the expansion of our newsroom, which goes hand in hand with our decision to add a Friday issue to our publishing schedule when Congress is in session. We have yet more hires on the way, and I will keep you posted.
