Johnson taking flight from DOT to FAA
Johnson will serve as the agency's assistant administrator for communications and is "incredibly excited about the opportunity," she said in an e-mail to friends and colleagues on Friday. She previously served as a CNN political producer and is one of several journalists that joined the Obama administration.
Johnson's departure means her deputy, Olivia Alair, will now serve as press secretary. Alair served as a press aide on then-Sen. Joseph Biden's presidential campaign (helping The Eye score a face-to-face interview with Biden) before joining the Obama campaign in Ohio.
