Subject: Personnel news
Happy Thursday everyone.
We have some big news to share — Reid Wilson is coming back to The Hill.
Reid will cover state politics for us in yet another expansion of our political coverage. We decided to focus more on hot political issues at the state level because more than ever, federal and state politics have become intertwined. The North Carolina bathroom law controversy is a notable example, but there are many others.
Some background on Reid: He’s been reporting on politics for more than a decade for us (in 2008-2009), The Washington Post, The Morning Consult and National Journal and is a frequent talking head on the networks.
Reid is a native of Seattle (and an avid Seahawks and Mariners fan). Another interesting factoid about Reid: Comedy Central named him “The Great Political Mind of Our Time” in 2012.
Reid’s first day will be tomorrow.
