WMUR Hires Print Guy as Political Reporter

WMUR (New Hampshire) has hired political journalist John DiStaso as the station's new Political Reporter. 

DiStaso comes to the station from a News Editor job at New Hampshire Journal. Prior to that, for more than 30 years he worked as lead political reporter for the state’s largest newspaper: the New Hampshire Union Leader.

Now he ventures to the dark side and TV news. 

“We have a historic and exciting presidential primary season ahead of us, and across the country all eyes are on New Hampshire,” DiStaso said. “But the most important audience is the one right here in the Granite State. I’m thrilled to be a part of the WMUR team delivering breaking political news and analysis to the voters.”

He starts next week.
