From Roll Call’s release:
We are sorry to announce that Christina Bellantoni is leaving Roll Call, though we’re proud to tell you where she’s going: Christina will be the new Politics Editor for NewsHour on PBS.
It’s difficult to account for the impact Christina has had in just more than a year in the Roll Call newsroom. As our Associate Politics Editor, Christina helped build (and rebuild) a sharp politics reporting team, she drove our social media strategy and made CQ Roll Call synonymous with smart, clear-eyed analysis in countless television appearances.
Also, she was a terrific editor and energetic reporter who never failed to offer her time, ideas or sources to any task at any time. It is fitting that Christina’s last day with us will be Dec. 31, New Years Eve, for which she volunteered to serve as web editor.
As Politics Editor for another one of journalism’s most respected news brands, Christina will lead NewsHour’s political coverage, as well as supervise its justice, immigration and homeland security beats.
But we are pleased to say our relationship with Christina will not end here. Christina will continue to write for CQ Roll Call, as an occasional political columnist. Details of this arrangement are still being ironed out, but we look forward to keeping the Bellantoni byline in our pages whenever we can.
