Pickler is slated to join The Glover Park Group as a managing director in its strategic communications practice.

Pickler spent 17 years with the AP, starting out in Michigan before moving to Washington and the political beat. She covered the 2004 and 2008 presidential campaigns, in addition to the federal courts, the George W. Bush White House and, most recently, the Obama White House.

Politico first reported the move.

Glover Park is part of WPP.
