From the Dept. of Bragiculture

Today we have a prime candidate for entrance into the Department of Bragiculture. It’s Jay Lauf, SVP & Group Publisher over at Atlantic Media. Quartz launched its global business product in September 2012. Reporters are based in Washington, Soho and LA.

“The reactions we are seeing to Quartz on Twitter and in emails we receive is almost embarrassingly effusive,” said Lauf in a recent company release.

And just for fun, see if you can find the grammar mistake in his quote.

Morning Chatter

Quotes of the Day

MAKING AN ENTRANCE AND AN EXIT: Host of “CBS This Morning” Gayle King walked into the Washington Hilton on Saturday night in an eye-popping kelly green gown by Vicky Tiel. On Friday night, she was spotted leaving the Turkish Embassy residence where The Hill was hosting its pre-WHCD party.

“Don’t hurt yourself.” — A St. Regis employee to guests of Friday night’s TIME-People party at which partygoers, many of whom were White House correspondents, received gift bags so heavy they could give you a hernia. More on the contents later…

Humility is…

“I have been told many times I look like @MatthewPerry. I just saw him at #nerdprom. He is far better looking.” — The Hill’s Managing Editor Bob Cusack.

Editor wants WHCD weekend to be more substantive

“It kind of sickens me when you’re here for the White House Correspondents’ Weekend that there are not more substantive discussions.” — Steve Clemons, Editor-at-Large for The Atlantic, who hosted a discussion over the weekend with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Sen. Joe Manchin (R-WVa.) at the Ritz. The banquet room was packed. Breakfast disappeared too fast. The discussion centered on American military power today. Attendees included BuzzFeed Washington Bureau Chief John Stanton, NJ‘s Brian Fung, Yahoo! NewsChris Moody, Newsweek-Daily Beast‘s Eli Lake and The Atlantic‘s Jay Lauf.

A plea for help

“Someone catch me up on the last 9 days of news.” — Politico White House Correspondent Byron Tau.

Important Q to Ponder: “In a cab going to the airport but our driver is sleepy so he has the window down – to freeze or get into an accident?” — Oversharing Sherri Shepherd, co-host of ABC’s “The View.”

HuffPost‘s Sam Stein “impressed” with Politico

ThinkProgress‘ Judd Legum: “Politico currently has 54 separate links to stories abt WHCA Dinner on its front page.”

Huffpost‘s Sam Stein: “I’m kind of impressed.”

And in Bob Schieffer, Claire Danes father-daughter news… 

“Someone asked Bob Schieffer if he was Claire Danes’ daddy.” — former White House reporter Myles Miller.

Some buzz on BuzzFeed Party

“CSPAN showing super long line for @BuzzFeed party. A lot of sad faces who can’t get in #buzzfeedbbq” — Washington Examiner‘s Charlie Spiering. And this from Roll Call HOH’s Warren Rojas: “Crowd in #BuzzFeedbbq just let out very self-satisfied collective whoop after @cspan live shot of line @JackRoseinDC #counterwhcd”

Psy or is it more like Sigh?

“Psy just walked by me. I feel somehow cooler. Or at least more relevant.” — WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza. Good thing Cillizza didn’t actually try to communicate with Psy.

Starting new pub is stressful

“Rare has oped from Jeb Bush today so big relief we can get the big names when so new. I’m on pins and needles every day.” — Rare Editor-in-Chief Brett Decker. See here. Will Jeb run or won’t he? Who knows, but his last graph sounds rather presidential. He writes, “American greatness comes from the power of individuals – not the government – to create wealth and opportunity through competition, innovation and empowerment. Not only must we pursue reform, we must do a much better job communicating how these reforms protect and promote the genius of America.”

Jay Lauf Named Publisher of Atlantic’s Quartz

Here’s a lesson in title shifts. See if you can figure out which sounds more impressive. The longer one or the looonnnggger one.

Atlantic Media Company President Justin Smith announced today that Jay Lauf, Vice President and Publisher of The Atlantic, The Atlantic Wire, and The Atlantic Cities, has been promoted to Senior Vice President/Group Publisher of Atlantic Media Company and Publisher of Quartz, the company’s new global business news brand, which is set to launch on September 24, 2012.

“Jay is the rarest of talents in media,” said Smith in a statement about the man who may have just acquired the world’s longest title.

It doesn’t appear Lauf is giving a lot up.

A release states that in this “expanded” position, Lauf will remain Publisher of The Atlantic’s digital and print products while assuming Atlantic Media Company’s top sales and marketing role. His responsibilities will include corporate sales initiatives, strategic partnerships, and advertising revenue oversight for all Atlantic Media brands: The Atlantic and TheAtlantic.com, The Atlantic Wire, The Atlantic Cities, Quartz, National Journal,Government Executive, and Think Custom Media.

Lauf’s new role will be leading Quartz’s advertising and marketing efforts.

 

The Atlantic Names Associate Publisher

Jay Lauf, Vice President and Publisher of The Atlantic, announced today that Hayley Romer has been named Associate Publisher of The Atlantic. Working closely with Lauf and overseeing the national sales team, Romer will help lead advertising efforts for the brand across all its platforms.

In that role, she managed an integrated team on accounts ranging from Finance to Luxury to Technology across titles such as The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and Wired. Before joining Condé Nast in 2007, Romer managed the luxury account list at Forbes Media. She began her career in publishing at American Heritage magazine.

In her new CBSNews.com show @katiecouric, the CBS Evening News anchor sat down with Fox News host Glenn Beck. Beck, who has been one of Pres. Obama’s fiercest and most vocal critics, says last year’s GOP nominee, John McCain, “would have been worse.”

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe’s” roundtables yesterday and today voiced that they thought President Obama should have done Fox News Sunday.

After her interview with Ted Kennedy, Jr., “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl says she was “left with the impression Ted Jr. would run for public office someday.”

Ask and you shall receive… NYT: Blogs are often criticized for helping to kill print media. Last week, though, the prominent political blogger Andrew Sullivan used his forum on TheAtlantic.com to tell readers to subscribe to the print edition of the magazine. It worked. Within two days after last Monday’s post, Mr. Sullivan’s appeal pulled in 75 percent of the subscriptions that the Web site draws in a typical month, the magazine’s publisher, Jay Lauf, said.
