Homan will oversee the newest daily briefing, Morning Consult Finance, which launches this month. The @WashPost welcomes @RachelFeltman as its first science blogger and @nancyscola to “The Switch,” its finance blog. Meanwhile @CNN moves its remaining Atlanta shows to New York City, meaning all CNN shows are now anchored out of NYC or DC. Finally, Capitol Counsel – one of DC’s leading financial and banking government relations firms – hires Senate Banking Specialist Jenn Fogel-Bublick to help lead its growing financial and banking practice.
