Rumors Swirl of POLITICO Promotion for Susan Glasser

POLITICO revised logoRumors are swirling that Susan B. Glasser, editor of POLITICO Magazine, will soon be named executive editor of POLITICO, a position vacated earlier this month by Rick Berke. Berke, in an email to staff, cited disagreements over strategy with POLITICO president and CEO Jim VandeHei and editor in chief John Harris.

Glasser, who joined the magazine in late 2013, worked for years with VandeHei, Harris, and POLITICO chief operating officer Kim Kingsley at The Washington Post, prior to her forced departure in 2008.

Glasser and a POLITICO publicist that FishbowlDC reached out to for comment have yet to respond.

On Monday, POLITICO announced two promotions to its executive leadership team while hinting at planned expansion into the states, after last week’s announcement of it’s European venture with Berlin-based media company Axel Springer.

Jake Tapper, host of CNN’s “The Lead,” recently chatted with Bon Appétit for its “Morning Routine” column, a look into people’s first hours awake.

Tapper’s day begins at 7am, with his attention first directed to his email for recent news on current events, then to Twitter, and then to Facebook, all before getting out of bed.

The CNN anchor describes his coffee intake as “an IV drip situation that begins when I wake up and doesn’t end until the last possible moment.”
