Defense One Executive Editor Kevin Baron announced today the hire of Molly O’Toole as the outlet’s first politics reporter. O’Toole will cover “the rhetoric versus the reality of defense and foreign policy issues before Washington, from Congressional committees to the presidential campaign trail into 2016.”
Previously, O’Toole was a news editor at The Huffington Post where she focused on Latin America, foreign policy, immigration, and defense.
Since February 2014, Defense One – Atlantic Media’s digital publication focused on the national security and defense industry – has hired Patrick Tucker as technology editor, Ben Watson as news editor, and Gayle Tzemach Lemmon and Sarah Chayes as contributors. The site launched in July 2013.
