Fawn Johnson to Lead Capitol Hill Policy Coverage for Morning Consult


Morning Consult is adding policy veteran Fawn Johnson to lead their policy coverage on Capitol Hill. Johnson leaves National Journal, where she covered Congress and a range of policy issues – something Morning Consult editor-in-chief highlighted in announcing Johnson’s hire: “Fawn has covered nearly every domestic policy issue before Congress and the administration.” Morning Consult was founded by pollster Michael Ramlet and provides original reporting and morning email briefings designed to keep government and industry executives – and reporters – in the know. On her move, Johnson said: “I’m thrilled to lead Morning Consult‘s policy coverage on Capitol Hill. I love the vision for the company and its startup energy is contagious…. The ability for reporters to ask weekly public opinion polling questions distinguishes Morning Consult’s coverage of Congress and the energy, finance, health and tech industries.”
