Hiring a new graphic designer. Is it realistic to be looking for someone with both print and web design skills and some ability to code?

We're a small internal design office with a historical focus on and expertise in print design, but we're increasingly being asked to create more interactive online ads, micro sites and mobile ads.
The demand isn't high enough yet to justify hiring someone solely devoted to web design and implementation.
Is the ability to be able to design for print and web and be able to do some coding something that is being taught nowadays? Or am I looking at two vastly different skill sets that I'm not likely to find in one person?
