Martin Kady, editor of Politico Pro, announced today that Marjorie Censer has been hired as Defense Editor. She previously wrote for WaPo‘s Capital Business, where she covered the defense industry for the past four years. She is also a former managing editor for Inside the Army, where she led a team of reporters covering Army policy and programs. Censer comes on board as Pro is shifting focus a bit in their defense coverage. While they will still have a reporter dedicated to the Pentagon, their coverage will now focus more heavily on the Hill, where greater emphasis will be placed on defense policy, spending, and influence.
Marjorie’s first day is March 10.
