Neda Semnani, currently the deputy editor of Bill Track for CQ, is joining Roll Call as a reporter for Heard on the Hill. In a memo announcing her transition, Scott Montgomery said:
“Neda brings a distinctive mix of talent, wit and experience to HOH. Clearly, she knows a thing or two about Congress and the people in it from her years at CQ. But she’s also a lifelong DC resident who knows the Hill – inside and outside the Capitol. She has worked overseas with NGOs and was once an analyst at the World Bank. She also happens to be smart and funny. We believe Neda may be the first HOH reporter to have done graduate school at the London School of Economics.”
Neda will begin her new gig in May while the publication continues its search to fill the second HOH opening. In the meantime, you can follow her on Twitter @neda_semnani. Congrats to Neda!
