ALL IN THE FAMILY

The Hill - Jeffrey Birnbaum, one of the premier lobbying reporters, joined a leading K Street firm.

Birnbaum has gone to BGR Group. . . as president of its public relations practice, BGR Public Relations.

Birnbaum has reported and written for several national publications, including The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Time and Fortune. He has covered the White House and Capitol Hill and his former column at the Post, "K Street Confidential," was widely read among lobbyists in Washington. Also, his 1988 book, Showdown at Gucci Gulch, co-authored with Alan Murray, is considered one of the best dissertations of K Street.

Birnbaum left the Post in 2008 and headed to The Washington Times, where he was the digital managing editor, overseeing multimedia and online news for the newspaper. He resigned from that position at the end of 2009 after a recent shake-up among management at the publication.

"I'm happy to join such a well-established and well-regarded enterprise and look forward to dealing with the many new challenges that lie ahead," Birnbaum said in a statement.
