Benton Ives has been promoted to an editing position at CQ. Though it’s not being advertised that way, it sounds like it was Brian Nutting’s job.
FishbowlDC obtained John Dineen’s memo announcing Ives’ promotion:
Folks – I am very pleased to announce that Benton Ives will be joining our team of legislative action editors later this month. Most recently, Benton has demonstrated his exceptional talents as a writer and reporter through his coverage of the banking and financial services beat for CQ. This is Benton’s second tour of duty here: He returned in 2007, after spending more than a year covering finance for the Dow Jones Newswire. During an earlier four-year stint at CQ, Benton worked as a committees and floor votes reporter – experiences that no doubt will come in handy as an editor for our action team – and reported for CQ Homeland Security. Please join me in congratulating Benton on his promotion.
