Slow and steady wins the race? PBS Newshour’s Politics Producer Terence Burlij has been promoted to Deputy Politics Editor. He has been with the Newshour for a decade, starting out as a desk assistant in 2003.
In 2008 Burlij was promoted to associate producer and a year later moved up to producer. “That’s when he started producing the dozens of insightful political reports (both setups and long-form stories) that were our bread-and-butter throughout the most recent election cycle,” said a memo to staff from Executive Producer Linda Winslow and Political Director Christina Bellantoni.
They continued their praise about his dedication and passion, saying, “Terence is a trusted, competent and dedicated member of the NewsHour’s Team Politics. He loves the ins and outs of campaigns, and his enthusiasm for covering them shines through everything he does. From getting up at the crack of dawn to work on ‘The Morning Line’, to covering the political conventions and election night, to re-reading ‘What it Takes’ , Terence has proven his dedication and passion again and again this busy year.”
Born and raised in Cleveland, Burlij graduated from the University of Virginia.
