Yahoo adds BI's Hunter Walker

Oct 09, 2015

Hunter Walker plans to depart Business Insider for a gig as national correspondent at Yahoo News. Most recently a politics editor at BI, Walker's next task will be to cover the Hillary Clinton campaign.

"Now that it's public, a warm welcome to @hunterw, who joins @YahooNews Monday morning -- & then hops on an afternoon plane for the D debate," tweets Yahoo Politics editor-in-chief Garance Franke-Ruta.

"See you in Vegas!" Walker replies.

Colleague Azi Paybarah chimes in, "this should be fun."

Also, Walker adds, "Hunter congrats Twitter is terrible," which we can only interpret to mean there hasn't been nearly enough congrast-ing go on, so ... join us in remedying that!
