Kraushaar In, Wilson Out

National Journal‘s Josh Kraushaar will grab the torch of Editor-in-Chief of “The Hotline,” while Reid Wilson moves over to WaPo to head up a new online destination called GovBeat. The news was announced today and is already splattered around the Twitterverse.

“We’re thrilled that Josh has agreed to take the helm of Hotline,” said NJ Editor Charles Green. “He’s everything you’d want in an editor in chief: He commands the respect of politics junkies as one of the smartest political analysts in town; he knows the Hotline operation backwards and forwards; and he’s a digital innovator who will help Hotline evolve in its role as the premier political tip sheet in Washington.”

Kraushaar was managing editor for politics at NJ. Before that, he worked at Politico.

“It’s a tremendous honor to step in as the next editor-in-chief of the Hotline, and follow in the footsteps of the greats who have led the publication over the years – Doug Bailey, Chuck Todd, Amy Walter and my friend and longtime colleague Reid Wilson,” said Kraushaar. “At a time when it’s hard to separate the buzz from substance in political coverage, Hotline’s brand of authoritative aggregation and analysis continues to stand out from the pack. I am excited about the opportunity to cover the 2014 midterms and the 2016 presidential election with a talented team of Hotliners and expect big things in the months ahead.”

As Green wrote in a memo to NJ staff, “We wish Reid nothing but the best in his new job. He’s been a wonderful colleague and talented leader during his tenure at Hotline. We look forward to reading his work in the years to come.”

Wilson has been in the role of editor-in-chief since 2010.
