Journo job moves for Thursday

Aug 04, 2016

Today's career highlight:

  • Out of work no more: The journalist who broke the Melania Trump plagiarism scandal from a Starbucks café just earned himself a new gig! Jarrett Hill (at right) joined Blue Nation Review last week as a special correspondent, with his first assignment being the Democratic National Convention.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the industry:

  • CBS News welcomes Frances Fragos Townsend as a senior national security analyst. Townsend joins from CNN, where she was also a national security analyst, but you might know her as the former Homeland Security & Counterterrorism advisor to President George W. Bush.
  • Ethan Wolff-Mann will soon depart TIME's Money team for Yahoo Finance, where he will be a staff writer. Wolff-Mann most recently served as a reporter at Money.
  • Carlos Avilés is another journalist slated to leave La Opinión for a new role elsewhere. Currently La Opinión's local news editor since 2013, Avilés will next head to Southern California News Group, the parent company of the Los Angeles Daily News, where he will be Hispanic Publications Editor.
