A Young Veteran for the Journal

My good friend Annie Johnson, who worked for us at the Blue Ridge Business Journal while she was still a student at Randolph Macon Woman's College in Lynchburg a few years ago, is the new reporter for the Journal, which is undergoing almost complete reorganization.

Annie brings a good bit of street cred to the Journal. She has been with Congressional Quarterly for more than a year, having left a job as a reporter at The Roanoke Times for the D.C. gig. Even as a student, Annie brought incredible energy and creativity to her work with us at the Journal. She became one of our most reliable reporters before she was old enough to buy liquor.

She moves into a publication that has suffered massive losses of advertising in the last year and whose editorial signature vanished.

She will be a worthy opponent.
