June marked the highest traffic month of 2014 for National Journal, garnering more than 3.3 million monthly unique visits to the site, the same month the magazine debuted its redesign. In early June, we wrote that during the first five months of 2014, traffic was up 50% compared to the same time last year.
Also significant for NJ, it added several new writers in the recent months, including Emily Schultheis, Alexia Campbell, Rachel Roubein, Zach Cohen, Nora Caplan-Bricker, Michelle Cottle, Simon van Zuylen-Wood, Daniel Libit, and Ethan Epstein.
“The new magazine adds another dimension for us: We have great in-the-moment journalism and extraordinary long-form journalism too, a mix that is driving influential readers – and top-flight journalists – to National Journal,” said NJ Editor-in-Chief and President Tim Grieve in a press release.
