Betsy Fischer, the executive producer of “Meet the Press,” and Politico’s Jonathan Martin got engaged Friday night at the Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels, MD. Martin emailed his Politico colleague Mike Allen: “It’s a special place for us, as it was the site of our first weekend getaway together. Champagne inside the inn followed the big question. For the ring aficionados, it’s an emerald cut diamond. We’re both appreciative of the love from family and friends. And I’m a very lucky guy.”
It was back to work for both this morning. Martin was in a 2012 election story on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and was a guest live on C-Span’s “Washington Journal,” (Video after the jump of Martin talking about the engagement). Meanwhile, Fischer Tweeted through a “Meet the Press” interview with Secy of State Clinton, then later, updated her Facebook status to “engaged.” Presumably, the engagement means Martin’s already limited “Meet the Press” appearances will be curtailed.
Martin and Fischer (shown at a book party in June 2010) have been dating since early 2010.
