Nice hire by The Hill! In an internal memo obtained by FBDC, The Hill‘s Hugo Gurdon announced to his staff today that WaPo‘s Kim Hart will be joining the pub to cover the intersection of technology and politics.
Hart currently covers technology at WaPo and pens a weekly column called “The Download.”
Gurdon’s memo after the jump.
I am very pleased to tell you that The Hill’s newsroom will be joined next month by Kim Hart, who is currently on the staff of the Washington Post, where she writes news stories and a weekly column (called The Download) about technology.
Kim will cover the intersection of technology and politics in the print and online platforms of The Hill. This is an increasingly important news area, attracting the attention of many congressional committees and executive branch agencies. Kim will ensure that technology policy stake holders and lobbyists recognize The Hill as the best place to keep up to date with developments affecting their work. I am sure this news of continued growth at The Hill will be welcome to you all.
