Following Website Redesign, NJ Hires Richard Just to “Reengineer” Mag

National Journal Editor-in-Chief Tim Grieve announced today that Richard Just will be the new editor of National Journal magazine.

Just was most recently editor of Newsweek, and before that, The New Republic. He will lead the magazine through a redesign this spring with Deputy Magazine Editor Andie Coller. He will also oversee the hiring of additional staff editors and reporters over the next several months.

“It’s an exciting time to join National Journal given the opportunity and resources on hand to be bold and creative while maintaining the foundation on which this venerable brand was built nearly 50 years ago,” Just said.  “As we reengineer the magazine, our focus will be on making it a source for long-form writing about politics that is enlightening, challenging, informative, and (as all great magazine journalism should be) truly fun to read.”

Just’s first day is March 10. Congratulations Richard!
