ABC to Get New ‘Note’ Writer


Huffington Post political editor Michael Falcone has been hired at ABC News to serve as deputy political director and author of “The Note,” the widely read morning Beltway tip sheet. ABC News has also promoted Zachary Wolf, a producer for the network, to be another deputy political editor and online editor. Falcone will now compete directly with his former Politico colleague Mike Allen, who writes one of the other must-read daily roundups, the “Playbook.” [FishbowlNY/Mediabistro]
