"Congrats @tamarakeithNPR! Looking forward to working with you," tweeted AP's Josh Lederman, who is also on the White House beat.
In the meantime, Keith will continue to serve as congressional correspondent in Washington until this January, when Shapiro is scheduled to depart. That means she's had plenty on her hands, and will probably stay busy between now and then!
"Massive kudos to my colleagues on the Hill these past weeks," remarked Don Gonyea at NPR, naming Keith and a handful of others.
"Today's #debtceiling #shutdown coverage brought to you by comfortable shoes and caffeine," Keith announced yesterday, sharing this telling instagram.
Congratulations on the job, and thanks for your hard work, Tamara. We're sure those shoes and that caffeine will come in handy at the next gig, too.
