Atlantic Media’s ‘Defense One’ Plans to Double Editorial and Business Staff

PrintDefense One today announced that it plans to more than double its number of dedicated staff with the addition of 11 new full-time editorial and business employees. The announcement comes days after the Atlantic vertical celebrated it’s one-year anniversary, in which it already doubled its staff from three to six and experienced record monthly traffic of 800,000 page views and nearly 600,000 unique visitors during its first year.

As part of the expansion, executive editor Kevin Baron plans to hire three new beat reporters as well as two regular contributors. The U.S. defense and national security-focused brand will also add a general manager, associate publisher and events director along with dedicated sales and marketing persons.

“We’ve seen in the last year a tremendous appetite for the kind of journalism, ideas commentary, and events that has become the hallmark of the Defense One brand,” said Baron. “We did what we came to do in year one, and now this investment will enable us to expand our reporting on the national security community.”

Tim Hartman, CEO of National Journal Group that oversees Defense One, will lead the effort.
