Score another point for New Media.

Per the press release:

“James’ jump to is a move towards the future of media - quick, relevant, local content with expert analysis and a unique voice,” said Observer Media Group publisher Jared Kushner. “In today’s media environment, you not only have to be first, but you have to be right. James is a fresh voice and an emerging powerhouse in political reporting. Throughout his career, he has proven himself to be a first-class reporter. He’s known for breaking stories both large and small and finding the nugget of information that brings politics and its players to life. James will be a tremendous asset to the brand as we grow over the next year.”
