NJ Is Totally Psyched to Get Richard Just

As we reported earlier today, Richard Just has just been brought on as editor of National Journal’s magazine. And if this internal memo from Editor in Chief Tim Grieve is any indication, NJ feels they’ve scored quite a coup. Grieve is clearly stoked to bring Just on board, and though he acknowledges that Just and Deputy Editor Andie Coller have a lot of work to do to “reinvent” the mag, he also promises that “they’re going to have all the resources to do it right.”

From the memo:

This is major. Richard is one of the best magazine editors in the country. He was the editor of Newsweek.  Before that, he was the editor of The New Republic. He comes to us with the strongest possible endorsements from some of the nation’s most accomplished magazine writers. And he comes to us brimming with ideas for making National Journal the most vibrant, most compelling, most essential policy-and-politics magazine anywhere.

Someone’s ears must be burning! Read the whole memo after the jump…

Following Website Redesign, NJ Hires Richard Just to “Reengineer” Mag

National Journal Editor-in-Chief Tim Grieve announced today that Richard Just will be the new editor of National Journal magazine.

Just was most recently editor of Newsweek, and before that, The New Republic. He will lead the magazine through a redesign this spring with Deputy Magazine Editor Andie Coller. He will also oversee the hiring of additional staff editors and reporters over the next several months.

“It’s an exciting time to join National Journal given the opportunity and resources on hand to be bold and creative while maintaining the foundation on which this venerable brand was built nearly 50 years ago,” Just said.  “As we reengineer the magazine, our focus will be on making it a source for long-form writing about politics that is enlightening, challenging, informative, and (as all great magazine journalism should be) truly fun to read.”

Just’s first day is March 10. Congratulations Richard!

Changes A-coming to National Journal

Tim Grieve announced yesterday that more changes are coming to the National Journal. In an email to staff, he announced two new hires and two promotions. Andie Coller will be joining NJ as deputy magazine editor and Brendan Sasso as a technology correspondent.

 

Coller started her career in New York, working at the New York Post before jumping to Politico, where she has been an editor. Sasso is the lead writer for the Hillicon Valley blog at The Hill and is the second reporter from The Hill to leave for the National Journal in the last month. Ben Geman was hired in November to cover environmental issues.

Grieve also announced two promotions. Patrick Reis is moving into a new role as NJ’s Policy Editor with responsibility for health care, tech,  and defense. Matt Berman is also taking on new responsibilities as the editor of NJ’s wire team.
