The Daily Caller‘s congressional reporter Jonathan Strong is picking up and moving to Roll Call to join the pub’s House leadership team.
“I’m thrilled to be joining a great team at Roll Call!” Strong told FishbowlDC.
As many know, he broke the recent Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) migraine headache story that quickly spread across the airwaves. He’s also responsible for breaking that RNC bondage night club story that became a hit. Over the weekend he appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”
This is clearly a boon for Roll Call. No doubt, his friends and colleagues at The Daily Caller are sad to see him go. All the best to him in his new post.
See the memo…
We are pleased to announce that Jonathan Strong is coming to Roll Call to join our leadership team covering the House.
Jonathan is currently a reporter for The Daily Caller, where he has made a name for himself using a simple strategy: he breaks news. You remember the recent excitement over Michele Bachmann’s migraines? Jonathan broke that story. The one about Jon Huntsman’s handwritten note to President Obama (“you are a remarkable leader!”)? Jonathan. And going back a bit further, Jonathan is the reporter who discovered a $2,000 expenditure in the RNC’s books for a bondage-themed nightclub.
Prior to the Caller, Jonathan was a reporter at Inside EPA where he covered water pollution regulations by the Environmental Protection Agency. He is a graduate of Wheaton College in Illinois.
We are delighted to have a reporter with Jonathan’s nose for news join our Hill team. He will start with us in late August. Please join us in welcoming him to Roll Call.
