In Other CQ Roll Call News…

Tough as it is to top a toilet flushing memo, in way less exciting news over at CQ Roll Call today, they’re announcing staff moves. In the meantime, would this be an appropriate time to request more toilet flushing tips?

The moves involve Anne Hoy, who takes over as executive editor for CQ news and Randy Wynn, who’s getting a new fancy title as chief news editor. Other team moves include Alan Ota and David Harrison to the economics team as well as John Gramlich, who is switching teams (so to speak) but will still cover legal affairs.

See the memo from Editorial Director Susan Benkelman

CQ Roll Call Memo Causes Eyes to Glaze Over

That music you hear is from a game of musical chairs happening at CQ/Roll Call. The staff is in the process of reorganizing, reconfiguring and re-trying to figure out what the hell they’re going to do next.

First off, they’re hiring. Or, more correctly, they’ve hired. From the all-editorial staff email:

“We are bringing a new editor aboard to handle technology, labor and education. I’m excited to announce that it will be Jill Smallen, a former editor with National Journal. Jill will oversee Ambreen Ali on the tech beat, tech EB editor Gautham Nagesh, labor and immigration reporter David Harrison and education reporter Lauren Smith. Up until about a year and a half ago, Jill worked at NJ for two decades, most recently as a managing editor at National Journal magazine, where she handled congressional coverage. Before that she was senior managing editor at Congress Daily. She’ll join us on April 9.”

So congratulations to Jill and those she will oversee for getting mentions in the memo.

There are a bunch of other staff shake-ups, but all just rearranging and reorganizing.

The email opens:

“I’m happy to announce some changes in our policy teams, with a slightly different configuration and a couple of personnel shifts, all of which we expect will strengthen our coverage and better position us for the future.

The new lineup will take us from four policy domains to five so that the assignment editors can specialize more intensively in their respective areas, and better coordinate news coverage with our specialty publications and Executive Briefings. In this structure, the vertical and EB editors will report to the domain editors while Anne Hoy will continue to oversee the verticals and EBs from a product-suite standpoint. She’ll work with the business side and with editorial operations to make sure the products run smoothly, set publication schedules and generally monitor the progress and success of this growing product line. Anne will also continue to oversee the CQ leadership team (Alan Ota and Rich Cohen) as well as our new legal affairs/judiciary reporter, John Gramlich, who started today.”

Yeah, I know, my eyes glazed over too.

Congratulations to everyone at CQ/Roll Call, or I’m sorry. Not sure which applies to you, but whichever it is, there you go. At least you all still have chairs now that the music stopped. At least in this round.

CQ Weekly: The Cover

CQ Weekly Mag is out today.

The highlights of this week’s issue…

In his cover story, Frank Oliveri writes that the military’s many and varied missions are unlikely to change, or even prompt much debate in Congress or at the Pentagon. In “The Power of Inertia.” David Harrison predicts the result from the super committee is a deeper distrust of Congress. And Jane Norman previews how the the Supreme Court decision on President Obama‘s health care law will affect Medicaid and many other federal mandates. See the cover story on public.cq.com later in the week.

CQ Roll Call Adds Two Reporters

CQ Executive Editor Susan Benkelman announced yesterday the addition of two new staff writers to the CQ social policy team.  Joanne Kenen, a senior writer in health policy for the New America Foundation, will join the publication on May 2 to cover health care.  She is a former Reuters reporter and held Kaiser Family Foundation media fellowship from 2006-2007.

In addition,  David Harrison, a writer for Stateline.org, will join CQ to cover retirement issues including Social Security, pensions and other related policy development. David has been with Stateline since September 2009 and before that wrote for the Roanoke Times and the Connection Newspapers in Virginia.  Harrison’s first day is May 9.

Congrats to David and Joanne!
