Iowa Independent: Obradovich is the new Yepsen

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

The Des Moines Register announced today that Kathie Obradovich will be
the paper's next political columnist. Obradovich, 44, has been the
Register's political editor since 2003, and she was a state government
reporter and statehouse bureau chief before that. Notably, though
Obradovich's CV certainly qualifies her for the new title, this
announcement should also help her employer save some cash. The
Register, which has been forced to trim its budget by struggling
parent company Gannett Co., has likely avoided the need to hire any
additional (high-profile) staff. Obradovich replaces longtime
columnist David Yepsen, who was a fixture of Iowa's political
landscape for decades before he left earlier this year to take a job
at Southern Illinois University.
