ed wyattEdward Wyatt, a 20-year reporter for the New York Times in Washington, D.C., has landed at Sphere Consulting in the capital as a senior VP in the PR and public affairs firm's public policy research and intelligence unit.

Wyatt, who took a buyout from the Times last year, covered telecommunications, technology, copyright and antitrust, among other topics during his stint at the times. He was previously a reporter and writer for Dow Jones Newswires and Barron's.

Sphere founder and managing partner Jim Courtovich said regulatory issues and implementation dominate the policy agenda in Washington, and he sees Wyatt's ability to distill complex policy issues as key for clients.
