Will Sommer of Washington City Paper’s “Loose Lips” has joined WTTG FOX 5 as a contributor, sources tell FishbowlDC. Sommer, who has covered everything from the 2014 mayoral election to the federal investigation into Mayor Vince Gray‘s 2010 campaign, will continue to work as the “Loose Lips” columnist. He will begin contributing to various station newscasts starting next week.
“Will Sommer’s Washington City Paper’s “Loose Lips” is a go-to destination for DC Politics,” said FOX 5 vice president and general manager, Patrick Paolini. “Will works sources, knows the inside story and breaks the big news. Adding someone of this caliber to FOX 5 news was an easy decision.”
The Houston native and Georgetown graduate covered crime at Washington City Paper before taking over the “Loose Lips” column in 2013.
