Good Thursday morning. Two scoops for you on hot hires:
- Josh Earnest, former White House press secretary, moves to Chicago to join United Airlines on May 21 as senior vice president and chief communications officer. CEO Oscar Munoz said Earnest, now a political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, "has thrived when the stakes are the highest — and the margin for error is the smallest."
- Kim Kingsley, one of our co-creators at Politico, joins Airbnb in San Francisco as director of global communications on June 5, reporting to Chris Lehane, global head of policy and communications. Co-founder/CEO Brian Chesky says: "[N]o one knows how to navigate and shape [the] new landscape better than Kim."
