WTTG Hires Political Contributor

By Kevin Eck 

As reported by our sister-site FishbowlDC, Washington, D.C. FOX owned WTTG is adding Will Sommer as a contributor starting next week.

Sommer is a writer for the Washington City Paper‘s Loose Lips” blog which describes itself as “All About D.C. Politics.”

“Will Sommer’s Washington City Paper’s “Loose Lips” is a go-to destination for DC Politics,” said WTTG VP and GM Patrick Paolini. “Will works sources, knows the inside story and breaks the big news. Adding someone of this caliber to FOX 5 news was an easy decision.”

According to his bio, “Will Sommer has covered the good, the bad, and the ugly in D.C. politics—from the 2014 mayoral election to the federal investigation into Mayor Vince Gray. Along the way, he’s seen more than one councilmember marched through the federal courthouse.”
