Jan 05, 2015

It's poaches galore! Reuters D.C. bureau chief Marilyn Thompson will soon join Politico as deputy editor, as current deputy managing editor Dianna Heitz (far right) prepares to take off for CNN Politics Digital. Heitz start on Jan. 19 at CNN as a senior multi-platform editor.

"A little personal news: I'm thrilled to join the @CNNPolitics team later this month! I'm so grateful for six awesome years at @politico," Heitz reveals.

"I’m very excited to kick off 2015 by announcing that @diannaheitz will join @CNNPolitics as our senior multi-platform editor. Welcome!" CNN executive editor Rachel Smolkin greets her.

Meanwhile, Thompson hasn't tweeted about her new home at Politico, but Blake Hounshell there essentially did that for her: "Very excited about working with the amazing @marilynt2004, who is not so great at twitter but awesome at breaking huge stories."
