Reporter Richard Piatt joined KSL (Salt Lake) in 1998, now he's leaving TV news and heading to Washington.
No he has not been elected to Congress, but he will be a congressional mouthpiece.
Congresswoman-elect Mia Love announced she has hired Piatt, as her communications director.
“I am thrilled to have someone with Richard’s experience on my staff,” Love said in a statement. “I am confident he will assist me in my efforts to represent the people of the 4th District, and the state of Utah in my desire to bring a Utah perspective to the important issues in Washington.”
“I’m looking forward to being on the other side of the business of politics,” Piatt said. “I’m excited to apply the skills I learned in broadcasting in a different aspect.”
Sounds boring as hell...but hey...whatever floats your boat.
