This just in from National Journal Editor Tim Grieve… National Journal has snagged Ben Geman away from The Hill to join their energy team.

See the effusive memo:

“I’m a few minutes behind Twitter, but . . . I’m thrilled to announce that Ben Geman will be joining National Journal’s energy team next week.

It’s no exaggeration to say that I’ve been trying to hire Ben for almost four years now. And if you follow energy news, you know why. From his perch at The Hill — and particularly the E-2 Wire — Ben has been breaking news and giving his competitors fits on a daily basis.  It will be a great to have him on our team.

Please join me in welcoming Ben when he arrives on Monday.”
