Despite Power Outage, CQ Roll Call Powers On

Let there be light!  And so there was at CNN’s Washington bureau as of one hour ago…but the blackout at CQ Roll Call rages on.  Thanks to Pepco, both newsgroups were without power since Tuesday afternoon.

So you might be wondering, how exactly does a newsroom function when their utility company doesn’t?  Luckily, we have the answer in the form of an internal memo from Roll Call Editor Scott Montgomery and Publisher Mark Walters.  The congratulatory message walks through the trials and tribulations their team overcame to put out Wednesday’s paper on time.

Although we think their figurative lights are out from time to time, we must applaud their heroic response to this literal blackout.  Novella Memo after the jump.

Roll Call’s National Account Manager Walks Out

On Friday, Kelly Lindner, their National Account Manager, walked out after 17 years. The scene was tense and she did not leave amicably. She is the 11th woman to leave in recent weeks.

The publication maintains that the departures have nothing to do with gender. Some top women presently at Roll Call on the editorial side include Christina Bellantoni, managing editor Katie Smith, and Politics Editor Lauren Whittington. There have been four new female hires in the past month: Shira Toeplitz (returning from her year abroad at Politico), Janie Lorber, Amanda Becker and Cyra Master.

“While we don’t comment on individual personnel matters, CQ Roll Call continues to recruit the best talent in the business, and we encourage ambitious, hard-working men and women to apply and work for us,” said Rebecca Gale, Director of Promotions and a relatively new hire who started with CQ-Roll Call in January.

Correction: The above has been corrected to reflect that Kelly Lindner is National Account Manager, not VP of Sales & Events, a role which she previously occupied.
