Girshman: The CQ Announcement

(earlier)

From the release:

    Congressional Quarterly Inc., the nation’s premier provider of news, analysis and information on Congress, politics and public policy, today announced that Peggy Girshman, longtime executive at National Public Radio (NPR), has been named executive editor of its newly created Consumer Publishing division. The appointment was effective July 3, 2007, and Girshman will report to the general manager of Consumer Publishing, Bruce Drake.

    Girshman joins Drake, formerly vice president of news at NPR, in a recently formed enterprise to expand CQ’s offering of in-depth coverage of politics and government on its free-content Web site. This new effort will build on CQ’s success with CQPolitics.com, created during the 2006 midterm election cycle. The expanded free-content site, aimed at a larger, beyond-the-Beltway audience, will strategically complement CQ’s core business of providing unparalleled news and analysis to its paid subscribers.
