Betsy Woodruff is playing an intriguing game of professional hopscotch.

Today the Washington Examiner reporter announced that she’s moving on to Slate after just nine months at The Examiner. She was hired at The Examiner in February, 2014. Before that, she worked at National Review for two years.

Sources say Slate recruited her because she has sources on the right and will fill a certain void created by Dave Weigel, now at Bloomberg Politics. To be sure, there won’t be any mistaking Woodruff for Weigel around the newsroom.
