Saul Out, Danis (Back) In

A quick Room 9 personnel announcement: Michael Bloomberg’s favorite reporter, Michael Saul, has left his position as City Hall bureau chief for the Daily News to cover the presidential race, to be replaced by one Kirsten Danis.

For Danis, it’s a return. She covered City Hall for the New York Post back around the time when reporters were allowed to smoke in Room 9. (Or so I'm told.)

For the last five years she was the morning editor the Daily News. Which means she should have no problem, unlike some of us, making those 9 a.m. press conferences.
