Capitol File Names Kate Bennett Third EIC In 15 Months

by MADELEINE STARKEY · August 26, 2010

Capitol File is taking on its third editor-in-chief, Kate Bennett, in 15 months.  For you math challenged people, that's an average of one new EIC every five months.  What gives?

Taking over for Sarah Schaffer, who is apparently Capitol File's new publisher, Bennett formerly ran the Niche Media Las Vegas iteration, Vegas Magazine, before heading east to the District.

Among Bennett's credentials are stints as assistant producer for MSNBC's "Hardball with Chris Matthews," entertainment reporter for KLAS-TV Channel 8 and gossip columnist at the Las Vegas Sun.

Will Bennett's reign at Capitol File breathe some life and glamour into the glossy?  We need some Vegas flair, Bennett!
