A staunch European switches sides
As of today, the press office of the EU Commission Representation in Germany has a new head. Birgit Schmeitzner, the longtime correspondent for Bayerischer Rundfunk in the ARD capital studio, will thus no longer sit with all the questions, as she has in the past, but will have to provide answers and explain EU policy. "That means I will also have to hand over my vanity at the front door," says Schmeitzner, who has spent more than 20 years in the public eye as a journalist and has more than 11,000 followers on Twitter.
