Washington City Paper has hired Andrew Giambrone to run our City Desk blog, beginning on July 13.

Giambrone comes to us via the Atlantic, where he just completed a one-year fellowship with the magazine. While there, he wrote about reducing gun violence, delivering flu shots via Uber, and a subject near and dear to our hearts, D.C. statehood. He interned at the New Yorker while at Yale, where was on the staff of the Yale Daily News. He grew up in Brooklyn.

The biggest attraction to the job, Giambrone says, is the chance to cover local news, and we promise to flood him with those chances and ramp up City Desk again.

You can follow him on Twitter @andrewgiambrone. Send him news tips there or to citydesk@washingtoncitypaper.com.
