Over the years one of the great pleasures of running TPM for David Kurtz and I is how many great young journalists have come through the organization, how we've been able to have some role in bringing their talents to the fore and the great careers they've gone on to at a whole slew of great news organizations like The Washington Post, Salon, The New Republic, The New York Times, NBC, CNN, ABC, Bloomberg, Buzzfeed, Propublica, Politico, Huffington Post, NowThisNews and just a slew of other pubs. What is a particular pleasure is being able to welcome one of our greats home.
Yesterday, I announced we were adding a new editor to our team as part of our expansion. David Taintor first joined TPM just out of college as an intern in the fall of 2010. We hired him as a full time staffer right out of his internship. And he worked his way up to reporter before leaving in 2013. We are now really excited, happy and lucky to be bringing him back as our new News Editor. David rejoins us from NBC News. He'll join Catherine Thompson, David Kurtz and me as our team of editors going into this new phase of the organizations history.
David will be rejoining TPM in early February.
