The Sacramento Bee announced today (Jan. 25) that one of its reporters, Gary Delsohn, has been hired by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger as his chief speechwriter, a job that pays $110,000 a year not including benefits. Recently, Delsohn has been covering the governor for The Bee. Delsohn is expected to start his new job Feb. 8 and the paper will put him on other assignments than state politics in the meantime. He is a past Knight Fellow at Stanford University. In 2003, he wrote a book called “The Prosecutors; A Year Inside the Life of a District Attorney’s Office.” Delsohn replaces speechwriter Jeff Danzinger, who has worked for the administration since Schwarzenegger took office after winning the 2003 recall election.
