FCC Press Secretary Kim Hart Exiting

Coverage Type: 

Kim Hart, press secretary to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler, is exiting to join a new unnamed and unlaunched media venture from Politico cofounders Jim VandeHei, Mike Allen and Roy Schwartz.

She will start Dec. 5 as technology editor. Chairman Wheeler has not said when he is exiting, but it is expected to be by Jan. 20, when a new President is sworn in. Hart's last day is Dec. 2. Hart joined the FCC in 2014 from Neustar, where she had been head of media relations. Hart is a former reporter and editor with Politico (she left in 2012), so it will be a reunion with her former boss.
