Based on that headline, you might be wondering if Brian Williams is retiring. No, but a different personal assistant — this one based at the White House — is calling it quits.

Reggie Love will be leaving at the end of the year:

Reggie Love, the former Duke basketball player who has been a constant presence by Obama’s side since the 2008 presidential campaign, will depart the White House by the end of the year, a person familiar with his decision said.

Love, 30, is the latest in a string of longtime Obama aides to leave the White House this year, including senior adviser David Axelrod, press secretary Robert Gibbs, deputy press secretary Bill Burton and deputy communications director Jen Psaki. All were part of Obama’s team since at least since the 2008 race.

If you’d like to try and get the gig, the compensation package is in the neighborhood of $100,000 a year. Frequent meal stops, paid vacations, and freedom from the hassles of commercial airlines are included.

Here’s a partial list of job duties for those thinking about applying:

His job requirements have included everything from carrying copies of the president’s speeches, his iPod, and a steady supply of gum, newspapers and aspirin, to taking photos for audience members as they shook the president’s hand. Wherever the president goes, Love has rarely been more than a few steps behind.

Love was lucky in that in 2008 and 2009 the MSM voluntarily carried Obama’s water, so the workload was lightened just a bit. Whether or not the next personal assistant gets the same help remains to be seen.

Apply here. Teleprompter repair and maintenance experience required. Better than average top-of-the-key jumper a plus.
