All right all you big-time editors (looking at you, Ryan Grim, Susan Glasser, Jon Allen, Rachael Smolkin, Gabriel Snyder, Karey Van Hall, and Rachel Van Dongen) – we’re helping you find the next generation of talent. We reached out to our sources and compiled a list of 5 political reporters to watch.
Juana Summers, NPR
She dominated the defense coverage beat at Politico. She moved to NPR and owns the political beat with her unique stories.
Dana Liebelson, Huffington Post
Dana has to be among the most deceptively tenacious journalists in Washington. AND she is in a punk band that is actually very good.
Alicia Amling, CBS News, Producer
Hey, she doesn’t read our emails but that didn’t stop us from adding her to the list. Numerous sources confirmed that you can’t out hustle Alicia. She will be a key player behind the scenes as 2016 coverage heats up.
Lauren French, Politico
French is leading the Politico homepage almost more than Hillary these days. Key part of Politico’s Congress team.
Megan Wilson, The Hill
Megan is developing quite a Rolodex on K Street and her lobbying coverage drives beltway conversations.
