Rayasam Leaves U.S. News

From an internal U.S. News announcement, obtained by FishbowlDC:

    Renu Rayasam
    is leaving us to take a position with Fortune Small Business. Her last day is August 16. The good news is that she will be the magazine’s Washington person and remain right here in D.C. In her time at U.S. News, Renu has anchored the smallbiz beat and written excellent pieces for just about every part of Money & Business, including such greatest hits as Genentech (Best in Business), business-oriented resorts (Executive Edition), and section ledes on alternative advertising and the biotech/nonprofit connection, among others. Renu has been a great colleague, and I hope you’ll join Tim, Jim, and me in wishing her all the best with FSB.
