Susan Glasser has been named editor of POLITICO, according to a memo issued this morning from the Rosslyn-based political news outlet’s CEO Jim VandeHei, editor-in-chief John Harris, and COO Kim Kingsley.
“Susan is among the smartest, most innovative and creative editors around,” write VanDeHei, Harris, and Kingsley.
The memo says that she will soon name an executive editor, the position of Rick Berke, who announced his resignation earlier this month.
“Our challenge is to extend our dominance in this space and expand our reach − in Washington, key states and the world,” add VanDeHei, Harris, and Kingsley. ”That is why we are redesigning our digital properties, redoing all of our technology, expanding into Europe, exploring new state versions of POLITICO and growing our operation and leadership here.”
Glasser, who joined POLITICO Magazine as editor in late 2013, worked for years with VandeHei, Harris, and Kingsley at The Washington Post, prior to her forced departure in 2008.
