  • Carol Eisenberg will leave her post as deputy managing editor at Politico Pro Dec. 3, and will join The Post as deputy editor for the health/science team. She has been with Politico Pro since 2015 and helped oversee coverage of health policy in the early days of the Trump administration. She has also worked for Kaiser Health News and Congressional Quarterly. 
  • Neena Satija will join the investigative desk’s rapid-response team as a reporter. She starts January 21, 2019.

She has also reported for the New Haven Independent, the Connecticut Mirror and Connecticut Public Radio.
  • Jenn Abelson will join the investigative unit as a reporter in January 2019. She is currently a writer for The Boston Globe’s Spotlight Team, and has been at the paper since 2001. She has written an array of investigative stories and is a Pulitzer Prize finalist. 

Erika Allen has joined The Cut as culture editor overseeing culture coverage and editing essays, profiles, and features that focus on people and cultural events. She comes from the Outline, where she was executive editor. Prior to that, she was deputy editor at Vice magazine, and before that she worked for The New York Times.
