Politico chief foreign-policy writer Laura Rozen is stamping her passport for Yahoo! News, coming on board as its senior foreign-affairs reporter, based in its Washington, D.C., bureau. She will also launch The Envoy, a blog focused on foreign policy.

Yahoo! executive editor of North American audiences Dave Morgan said:

The addition of Laura to The Upshot team is another example of how the Yahoo! News blogs have established themselves not only as a home to one of the industry’s largest audiences, but also a magnet for the industry’s best talent.
