Ex-Projo’er Steve Peoples moves on again – this time to AP

Less than a year after he left The Providence Journal for Roll Call, Steve Peoples is on the move again.

Peoples is departing the Capitol Hill paper to join The Associated Press as a Northeast regional political reporter, according to a memo from Roll Call’s managing editor, Scott Montgomery, that was obtained by FishbowlDC. He’ll be based out of Boston.

“Although his time here was short, his name will forever be linked with Santorum’s ‘Google Problem’ and the story he wrote assessing it,” Montgomery said, according to FishbowlDC. (If you missed that immortal piece last February, check it out here.)

Peoples – who’s also been moonlighting recently as GoLocalProv’s Washington correspondent – confirmed the news in a tweet this afternoon. “Excited to be joining AP’s 2012 team,” he wrote. “I’ll miss the wonderful people at RC, but can’t imagine a better place to be this cycle.”
