A Look Back at Susan Glasser’s Ambitions for POLITICO Magazine

Just one year ago, Foreign Policy editor-in-chief Susan Glasser joined POLITICO to launch its magazine. Today, she was named editor of the Rosslyn-based news outlet.

Around the time of the magazine’s November debut, referring to its inaugural cover that portrayed a look into the Oval Office through a key hole, but more broadly in terms of POLITICO and the magazine, Glasser then said, “It’s to take readers as much as possible through the Washington key hole. To take you into the rooms you want to be in. Into the rooms where decisions are make. Into the rooms where there’s not always transparency and accountability.”

Fortune Unveils its 50 Most Powerful Women in Business

mpwFortune today unveiled its list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business, spanning women leaders in media, technology, finance, and consumer products.

It includes Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook at #10, Marissa Mayer, CEO and president of Yahoo at #16, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki at #19, Bonnie Hammer, chairman of NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Group at #41, and Gracia Martore, president and CEO of the McLean-based Gannett at #43.

Fortune‘s Jennifer Reingold writes of this year’s 17th annual list, that, “Today eight of our top 10 MPW lead large industrial, tech, and consumer products companies. It’s a long way from our original 1998 list, on which, we noted at the time, most members ‘came from industries with a premium on creativity,’ such as advertising, media, and publishing, with ‘no top women at blue-chip firms.’ Creativity is still a requirement for success, of course, but you no longer have to work in a ‘creative’ industry to advance as a woman.”

David Gregory Moderates Yesterday’s No Labels National Ideas Meeting

Former “Meet the Press” host David Gregory yesterday moderated a discussion at the No Labels National Ideas Meeting, with honorary co-chairs Gov. Jon Huntsman and Sen. Joe Manchin.

On the topic of media coverage in Washington, Gregory said, “Sometimes it is an over-simplification to talk about the speed of the news cycle — that is part of the problem. What it is is the attachment to narrative…In Washington political journalism the narrative gets set early and then its built on. Things that fight the narrative get harder to report out, often because of laziness in the media.”

Susan Glasser of Being Named POLITICO Editor: ‘I am honored and totally blown away’

Susan Glasser, who early Thursday morning was named editor of POLITICO, followed up on a memo to staff issued by the Rosslyn-based political news outlet’s CEO Jim VandeHei, editor-in-chief John Harris, and COO Kim Kingsley.

“I want to say that I am honored and totally blown away by the opportunity to become POLITICO’s Editor,” writes Glasser to staff. “There is an inspiring and clear vision for the next stage of POLITICO’s growth, both here in Washington and far far beyond the Beltway in Brussels and elsewhere, and it’s going to be a big and engaging project to support it.”

Susan Glasser has been named editor of POLITICO, according to a memo issued this morning from the Rosslyn-based political news outlet’s CEO Jim VandeHei, editor-in-chief John Harris, and COO Kim Kingsley.

“Susan is among the smartest, most innovative and creative editors around,” write VanDeHei, Harris, and Kingsley.

The memo says that she will soon name an executive editor, the position of Rick Berke, who announced his resignation earlier this month.

“Our challenge is to extend our dominance in this space and expand our reach − in Washington, key states and the world,” add VanDeHei, Harris, and Kingsley. ”That is why we are redesigning our digital properties, redoing all of our technology, expanding into Europe, exploring new state versions of POLITICO and growing our operation and leadership here.”

Glasser, who joined POLITICO Magazine as editor in late 2013, worked for years with VandeHei, Harris, and Kingsley at The Washington Post, prior to her forced departure in 2008.
