Washington Journalism Suddenly Gets Sexy: Pubs Engage in a Threesome

They call it bipartisan “coupling” and a brand that will be as powerful as Carville-Matalin or Mitchell-Greenspan. We see a threesome.

The Purple Network, otherwise known as The Nation and National Review, is welcoming a third publication to their rendezvous: CQ Weekly.

The key graph in the statement claims that The Purple Network will be more powerful than Politico, The Atlantic Monthly, The New Yorker and even the NYT Sunday edition. Read more

Roll Call Nixes Friday Print Edition

Roll Call will soon drop its Friday print edition. Look for the change to happen after the July recess.

Beth Bronder, SVP and Publisher of CQ Roll Call, told FishbowlDC the following in an email through a publicist: “As with most other media organizations, the way CQ Roll Call readers consume news and information continues to shift dramatically from print to online, and Roll Call is aggressively focusing our attention on digital-first editorial features that appeal to readers and advertisers alike. We’ve launched several new blogs and online features in the last 8 months and have seen our site traffic increase over 60%. In that light, we will still publish the same content Roll Call readers have relied on, on Fridays, via RollCall.com, including features such as the “Hill Life” section, which will also appear in the Thursday print edition. This section will now include book reviews, a sports page and Hill Climbers. So while we will no longer be publishing a Friday print issue we will in fact be publishing more content on Friday via the web and more Capitol Hill lifestyle features in print on Thursday and online Friday.”

WHCA Limits CQ Roll Call Dinner Tickets; Patricia Arquette Will Be Their Guest

Somewhere, someplace is an archery range with FNC Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry‘s face as the bull’s-eye.

CQ Roll Call White House Correspondent Steven Dennis let his White House Correspondents’ Association membership lapse. He renewed it, but decisions had been made. The publication isn’t getting all the seats it wants this year. It’s a better deal than some pubs, which got shut out entirely. Still, this year there will be one table for CQ Roll Call. No extra tickets possible. Pretty strange considering CQ Roll Call has purchased tables at the WHCD for the past 20 years. A recent exchange between the publication and Henry, this year’s president of the WHCA and once the HOH writer for Roll Call, made it clear that the answer was no and that the seats had sold out.

We asked CQ Roll Call to comment on the matter.  Read more

A Little Birdy Tells Us…

That Roll Call could see its Friday print issue disappear in several month’s time, but pointedly before the end of 2013. The Economist Group‘s Chief Executive Andrew Rashbass was in town visiting this week. We’re told he was completely hands on and even went on a sales call with CQ Roll Call‘s Senior VP and Publisher, Advertising, Beth Bronder.

UPDATE: Looking at this from another angle, some journalists at Roll Call have expressed that it works better to not have a Friday paper because the stories that go in the paper are usually more enterprise type pieces. Most weeks, Thursday and Friday offers reporters a good chance to do reporting for a Monday story that is filed Friday
anyhow.

Another CQ Roll Call Sales Rep Returns

It’s another homecoming for a member of CQ Roll Call‘s sales team. Mary Cadwallader, who worked for CQ Roll Call for five years between 2005 and 2010, is returning to the publication after making the rounds at a variety of political pubs such as The Hill (two years) and most recently Talking Points Memo, where she was VP of Sales for about 10 minutes (no, no, actually two months. Hey, at least she gave her two weeks notice.)

Cadwallader was welcomed back by Beth Bronder, who recently fled Bloomberg to also return to her old stomping grounds.

Bloomberg Sales Dept. Bloodbath Continues

The runaway train better known as Bloomberg Government continues on it’s destructive, uncertain path. Yet another senior sales employee is leaving Bloomberg to return to CQ Roll Call, FishbowlDC has learned. Beth Bronder, head of Federal Sales, is returning to her former employer.

Earlier this week Bloomberg fired Leon Frazier, the head of sales, along with two top sales personnel followed by the departure of Joanna Matthews, who is also returning to CQ Roll Call. Please note: Matthews was not fired from Bloomberg. She elected to return to her former employer as National Director of Sales.

Frazier has been replaced by Josh Eastright; Matthews by Rob Recklaus. Where this all will end no one yet knows. While Bloomberg PR is painting this as a restructuring, we’re hearing other Bloomberg Government employees have also been let go, including three product managers and two multimedia employees.

UPDATE: See the CQ Roll Call memo welcoming Bronder back. Despite her leaving for Bloomberg, they say she has a “profound belief” in their brands.

4 Sale by Owner: Governing Mag

Last week we told you that Beth Bronder was rumored to be stepping down as publisher of Governing… and we think we know why.

Now that Times Publishing has made the deal to sell CQ to the Economist Group, the Florida-based publisher is looking to move Governing magazine. According to Folio’s Jason Fell, the announcement was made today.

Bronder Leaving Governing Magazine?

Sources tell FishbowlDC that Beth Bronder is leaving her position as publisher of Governing magazine. We’ve been told that Peter Harkness will fill the post until a new publisher is hired.

Bronder did not respond to email or phone calls about her departure.
