WSJ DC bureau makes two additions
John Bussey, the Washington bureau chief for The Wall Street Journal, made the following announcement on Thursday:
“I’m pleased to announce two additions to the Washington bureau:
“Keith Johnson has joined the bureau to cover the Department of Homeland Security and related topics. He was most recently writing the Environmental Capital blog from Washington. Keith joined the paper in 1999 in the Madrid bureau where, over the years, he covered banks, telecoms, and energy. He was also part of a team of reporters that covered terrorism in Europe, and was especially active on that beat after the Madrid train bombings. Keith graduated from the University of Georgia in 1994.
“Devlin Barrett has joined the buro in a new post covering the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut congressional delegations and other political and regulatory matters affecting the NY metro area. His stories will appear primarily in the new Greater New York edition, but will also run in other sections of the paper.
“Devlin most recently was a reporter with the Associated Press in Washington where he covered the Justice Department. Between 2002 and 2009 he covered the NY congressional delegation for the AP, based in Washington. He was previously a reporter for the New York Post where he covered federal and state courts and terrorism. Devlin is from upstate New York and is a 1995 graduate of McGill University.
“Please join me in wishing Keith and Devlin success in their new jobs.”
