Dovere to Politico

dovere222 Dovere to PoliticoAfter five years at City Hall News, Edward-Isaac Dovere is leaving to take a job at Politico. His new title will be breaking news editor, a new position for the Washington-based outlet.

The president and CEO of the company that publishes City Hall News, Tom Allon, told me Dovere “joins a long line of distinguished journalists who have started their careers at Manhattan Media” including Jim Rutenberg, Andrew Jacobs and James McKinley.

Dovere was, for many, the face of that publication, writing (at length!) about, for example, the Working Families Party and previewing the would-be Senate candidacy of Steve Israel.

But Allon said his outlet is already planning to “expand our coverage of city and state politics” with new initiatives in the coming weeks and months.

Update: Dovere emails his contacts, saying, “We’ve broken news, gained an increasingly large following, and won our fair share of awards. And though I know I’ve personally caused quite a bit of trouble for a number of the people getting this email, I’ve enjoyed working with all of you.”
