Becket Adams, and also hired Sarah Westwood and Ethan Barton as investigative reporters and Claire Daniel as a social media strategist. WTTG FOX 5 hired Marina Marraco as a reporter and Patrick Paolini was named VP and GM and Paul McGonagle was named VP and news director. WSJ’s Peggy Noonan officially joins CBS News as a contributor.
