The New Structure at CQ-Roll Call

FishbowlDC obtained a copy of Mike Mills‘ email to staff outlining the new structure of the organization. One huge move, Roll Call‘s David Meyers is moving to CQ. See below:

The biggest changes at Roll Call involve the eventual merging of the Politics section with CQ’s political coverage (more on that below), as well as two important editor moves between Roll Call and CQ. Roll Call Managing Editor David Meyers is moving to CQ, where he will be in charge of all publications pertaining to members of Congress (this includes the biennial CQ book “Politics in America,” the members database, Capitol Advantage’s “Congress at Your Fingertips” and other member and staff-related research). David will report to John Dineen. Capitol Advantage’s research team, led by Tim Yoder, will move to David’s group, as will the CQ Weekly research team, headed by Nell Benton, and CQ’s Members’ team, led by Christy Lyons. Dan Parks, formerly managing editor of CQ Today, will replace David as Roll Call’s managing editor, reporting to Roll Call Editor Charlie Mitchell, bringing valuable CQ expertise into the Roll Call newsroom.

Full, VERY LONG restructure memo after the jump.
