NJ Parties Like the Pink Panther

It was Night 4 of NJ‘s flurry of launch parties at the rented space on E St. Thursday night was thought to be the mother of parties so far. The room was packed. So much so, that partygoers periodically slipped out into the cool air when they couldn’t take the crowding. Or, when they hoped to flee the towering wine-drinking man in blue linen who pawed some female guests (he wasn’t with NJ and appeared to be a straggler who wandered in off the street. At least one woman pushed him away).

Guests enjoyed cocktails, fancy hors d’oeuvres and the sounds of a live jazz band. They complained of too few bathrooms and a sweltering indoor temperature.

The dimly-lit warehouse space was enveloped in red velvet curtains. NJ Daily Editor Jason Dick loosely bragged that he had attended party after party and wasn’t tiring of it.”This is how we roll,” he joked. “I take my cues for living from the old Pink Panther movies with the martinis.

“It’s a little bit more fun than I anticipated,” he said, referring to the new web site launch and subsequent parties. “We started this back in February and it was hard to see where it was going. We’re all working as hard as we ever have. There’s a lot more steam in our strides.”

NJ brass did their best to squash talk of a NJ-Politico rivalry. But partygoers chattered about it. “For me, Politico is a start, but I’m not going to get a lot of substance out of it,” said a guest. Others felt the party logo looked too much like Politico. Dick dismissed the so-called feud, saying there much less animosity and more friendship than people know. “I have a lot more friends than enemies at Politico,” he said. He laughed, saying people had tweeted earlier in the week about whether NJ and Politico were going to “meet in a parking lot with knives and guns.”

Fournier said he was “excited” about the launch but just as excited to make it an early night and get home to his wife and child.

Many a journo turned up. Find out who and see more pictures after the jump…

Reporter Returns to First Love

goodbyeletter6ez.png

Jeremy Jacobs, formerly of Campaigns & Elections Magazine, has sent a goodbye letter to friends and sources, or, as Politico‘s Mike Allen likes to say, “friend sources.” As we’ve reported, Jacobs is going to work as editor of NJ‘s “Hotline On Call.”

Howdy,

I hope everyone is doing well and getting some down time this August. I am writing to let you know that I am leaving Campaigns and Elections magazine. Starting August 16, I will be the new editor of National Journal’s Hotline On Call. (http://hotlineoncall.nationaljournal.com/)

I have enjoyed my time at the magazine, but it is time to move on. I am very, very excited about what lies ahead at National Journal. In my new job I will be getting back to one of my first loves…

NJ Hires New Health Care Correspondent

Ron Fournier announced this morning that Matthew Dobias has been hired by National Journal as the group’s lead health care correspondent. Dobias joins NJ from Modern Health Care, where he served as Washington Bureau Chief.

In his memo announcing the hire, Fournier said:

“He [Dobias] joins Yochi Dreazen (Wall Street Journal), Jeremy Jacobs (Campaigns and Elections), Josh Kraushaar (Politico), Coral Davenport (Politico) and a handful of other new hires (who cannot be announced yet for various reasons). Together, we’re pointing to a late-October launch of the new website and unified publications.”

NJ’s Hotline on Call Names Editor

Jeremy Jacobs joins The Hotline as editor of Hotline on Call.

His past: The move couldn’t have happened sooner. He comes to Hotline On Call from the unraveling Campaigns and Elections magazine, where he and a scant few made the best of a difficult, confused working situation. He wrote features on campaign finance law and various races across the country – including the Massachusetts Senate special election.

He has worked for The Hill newspaper, where he wrote about House races and contributed to their “Blog Briefing Room”. During the 2008 cycle, Jacobs worked for the New York Observer and launched PolitickerMA.com, a news blog dedicated to Massachusetts politics. In less than a year, PolitickerMA.com grew to become a must-read for Bay State politicos.

…”Jeremy has what it takes to continue The Hotline’s long-held mission: Delivering wisdom before it’s conventional,” remarked The Hotline’s Editor-in-Chief Reid Wilson.

Jacobs joins Wilson, newly-hired executive editor Josh Kraushaar and Hotline’s staff at a time when, as the release states, “exciting changes are underway at Washington’s premium political information service.”

Jacobs begins on Aug. 16. Congratulations to him.
