NJ Nabs ‘Smart, Savvy’ Kiely from USA TODAY

NJ Group has announced today that political journalist Kathy Kiely is coming on board as Managing Editor for Politics.  Kiely currently covers Congress and national politics for USA TODAY.

“I couldn’t have asked for a stronger leader for our political team than Kathy Kiely,” said NJ Editor-in-Chief Ron Fournier.  “She’s smart, she’s savvy, and she’s earned a reputation as one of the hardest-working journalists in town.  She’ll bring depth and dimension to our political coverage, and her leadership will keep raising the bar for our whole team of political reporters.”

Her past: Kiely has been with USA Today since 1998.  Before that, she covered the White House for the New York Daily News, served as the Washington Bureau Chief for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and the Houston Post, and covered Washington for the Pittsburgh Press.  Kiely has covered every presidential election since 1980.

NJ Editorial Director Ron Brownstein, meanwhile, continues Fournier’s love fest and says she has “experience, sophistication and insight.”
