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.

NJ Takes Politico‘s Kraushaar, Promotes Wilson

National Journal‘s new EIC Ron Fournier announced today changes at the Hotline including the promotion of Reid Wilson and the hire of Politico‘s Josh Kraushaar. Reid will fill the spot left by Amy Walter who recently took a new gig as political director for ABC News and Josh will serve as Hotline’s new Executive Editor.

The hire of Kraushaar follows this week’s announcement that WSJ reporter Yochi Dreazen will join NJ as a senior correspondent covering military affairs and national security.

Memo from Fournier below:

Reid Wilson and Josh Kraushaar, two of the best chroniclers of congressional and national politics, are teaming up once again to help lead the Hotline. The two Hotline alums co-hosted a political show on XM radio during the ’08 elections and co-authored a blog on campaigns and elections for Politico and Real Clear Politics. They join a tremendously talented and hard working team, including Senate/Governor guru Quinn McCord and House race expert Tim Sahd.
Currently the editor of Hotline’s On Call blog, Reid Wilson will be serving as Hotline’s interim Editor-in-Chief. A solid reporter and lightning-fast writer, Reid took On Call to unprecedented heights. Since he started in November, traffic to the site has increased 100%. Reid has reported on politics for The Hill and Real Clear Politics and was named a rising star by Politico in the ’08 cycle. He was a staff writer for Hotline from August of 2005 until January of 2007.

Josh, Hotline’s new Executive Editor, comes to us from Politico where he has spent years breaking political news and covering and analyzing campaigns. He’s known to many in this building as the former editor of House Race Hotline. Josh will bring his insight, energy and great sources to The Hotline’s already formidable political staff.

Libit Bids Farewell to Colleagues at Local 16

homemade-spaghetti-sauce.jpg

Politico reporters came together Saturday night at Local 16 to say goodbye to colleague Daniel Libit. A wonderful sendoff, we’re sure.

But a note to Politico partygoers: Politico reporter Manu Raju is not Italian. In the list the tipster sent to Fishbowl, Manu’s surname (as shown below) renamed him after a Spaghetti sauce. Perhaps it was the liquor talking – the time was 3:07 a.m. when the note was sent. Or maybe Raju has a nickname in the works.

Regardless, those in attendance, said an e-mail, included: “Tim Alberta, Josh Kraushaar, Tim Grieve, Andy Barr, Erica Lovely, Meagan Bond, Sydelle Moore, Michael Calderone, Paige Connor, Kendra Marr, Meredith Shriner, Glenn Thrush, Martin Kady, Andie Collier, Matt Wuerker, Manu Ragu [STET], Ken Vogel, Kim Kingsley, Jmart.”

Best wishes to Libit in the Windy City, wherever he lands. (At last mention, he said his resume was under review at a number of Starbucks).

> Update: A crime has been committed against FishbowlDC — most likely a reporting while intoxicated (RWI) crime. To be sure, this is a lesson to me not to trust some a–hole writing us at 3 a.m. inventing some party in his or her head. Actual partygoers (with their correct spellings) include: Tim Grieve, Manu Raju, Josh Kraushaar, Andie Coller, Erika Lovley, Tim Alberta, Kendra Marr, Sydelle Moore, Meagan Bond and Andy Barr. Memo to VandeHarris: This is your “Winning the Dawn?” A thank you to Libit for setting the record straight. Libit, by the way, found this whole thing “HILLLLLARIOUS.”

Tim Sahd Joins Hotline

Tim Sahd is leaving the Cook Political Report to take over as editor of House Race Hotline, replacing Josh Kraushaar who went to the Politico.

Charlie Cook tells us, “While all of us at the Cook Political Report are sorry to see Tim leave, we are really excited to see him become the Editor of the House Race Hotline. It is a fantastic opportunity for him and we know he will do a great job. I couldn’t be happier for him. Our loss is the Hotline’s gain.”
