ABC News snags Time reporter Tamala Edwards for its White House beat, where she joins chief White House correspondent Terry Moran. She'll report for "Good Morning America" and other news programs at the network. Named last year in Folio magazine's "30 Under 30" list, Edwards, now 30, spent two years writing for Time International before joining the Washington bureau of Time in 1995. Her television experience includes appearing regularly on CNN's "Take Five."... Former Denver television reporter Dave Minshall wins his age-discrimination lawsuit against KMGH-TV. Minshall, who was 53 when he was fired four years ago, was awarded $562,152 in damages by a federal jury. The station says it will appeal.... Seattle Times reporter and AJR contributor Ross Anderson (see "Middle Man," March) leaves the newspaper where he started as an intern more than 30 years ago. As a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, he'll be writing on economic and environmental issues in the Northwest.
