The Hill has dipped into Roll Call‘s feature section to find their replacement for their Briefing Room blogger, a position recently vacated by Mike O’Brien. The new hire is the debonair and mustachioed Jonathan Easley.
O’Brien recently left the publication for MSNBC.com. Before Roll Call, Easley, a newbie to the journalism profession after working in corporate finance, was previously an editorial fellow at Salon.com.
Congratulations to Easley. He begins Monday.
UPDATE: We failed to note that Easley has been a Roll Call intern. He remarked, “Yeah, feature writing intern, my bad, wasn’t trying to deceive. I have Feature Writer on my Twitter because 33-year-old manterns are rarely called debonair.”
