Big news this morning from 1100 G St.: veteran Washington Post reporter David Hilzenrath will be joining team POGO, assuming the role of editor-in-chief.
Needless to say, we're excited to have Hilzenrath aboard the good ship POGO. In a statement released this morning, POGO Executive Director Danielle Brian said that he's an ideal fit.
“David’s top-notch investigative skills, passion for holding government accountable, and deep knowledge of how this city operates will help take us to the next level,” Brian said. “We’re thrilled he’s coming to POGO.”
For his part, Hilzenrath said, “I’m honored to be joining an investigative organization with such a distinguished tradition of public service and with such a talented and dedicated team. At a time when conventional news outlets are contending with profound economic challenges, the Project On Government Oversight’s commitment to watchdog reporting is more important than ever.”
Aw shucks. Stay tuned, dear readers, this should be fun.
