Hearst CT political reporter Kaityln Krasselt is leaving for the communications job at the state Department of Consumer Protection. The job at DCP was recently vacated by Lora Rae Anderson who moved to Governor Lamont’s office.
Kaitllyn has been at Hearst for 5 years, covering statewide politics for the last 2+ years. In May, she and colleague Emilie Munson won the Theodore A. Driscoll Award for Investigative Reporting for a series on workplace harassment. This year her reporting also debunked the false claim that due to COVID, the Department of Correction was letting out prisoners at a high rate.
Kaitlyn happens to be the the only person from Idaho that that many of us Nutmeggers know; we’re glad she isn’t leaving Connecticut.
It’s unclear if Hearst will bring in her replacement from the outside but we see that they are generally hiring.
