Sen. Scott Brown's wife joining WJLA as reporter
Gail Huff has been hired by Washington's ABC TV station WJLA as a part-time special project reporter.
You may know her as the wife of Scott Brown, the newly elected Republican senator from Massachusetts.The station says Huff will do medical, consumer and investigative stories--but will steer clear of politics.
Huff, who will start at Channel 7 after the Labor Day holiday, has been working at WCVB-TV in Boston for the past 17 years, according to the news release WJLA is going to put out Tuesday, a copy of which was obtained by The Post's Paul Farhi.
Huff has signed a two-year contract with the station -- which dovetails with the shortened term her husband won in the Massachusetts special election.
WJLA is owned by Albritton Communications which, in addition to owning a number of TV stations, owns the political newspaper and Web site Politico.
Huff's deal was brokered by Bob Barnett, the local lawyer and talent maven who also brokered WJLA's hiring of former WRC weatherman Bob Ryan.
