NJ Hires Duran as Exec Editor

In an unusual HR twist, FishbowlDC has confirmed that Nicole Duran will join National Journal as Executive Editor of NJ DailyMatt Cooper announced his interesting hire in an internal memo to the publication’s Congress team this week.  Nothing short of meteoric, Duran’s leap to NJ management is raising eyebrows around the newsroom.  Though she put in a number of years at Roll Call, CQ Daily and American Banker, she most recently served as a reporter for The Deal and has never worked as an editor.

In the memo, Cooper says he was “taken by Nicole’s ambition to break news, her exceptional energy and her spirit of generosity.”  Perhaps sensing her generosity might not justify her position for the rest of his crew, Cooper closed the memo with a disclaimer:

“Please welcome her when she arrives or before then. And if you have questions or concerns you can let me or Ron know privately.”

Duran begins her new gig on September 6th. We hope she’s up for the challenge.  Full memo after the jump.

Duran Leaves Roll Call

Nicole Duran has decided to leave Roll Call in order to pursue other opportunities,” Roll Call recently announced in a staff email.

Nicole joined Roll Call in 2003 as a staff writer and moved on to cover campaigns and elections.

There has been a bit of speculation that Duran left, in part, because she was not given the “senior” title usually granted to reporters after five years. That does look to have played a role in Duran’s departure, but there were other reasons, as well, and Duran may have simply decided that it was time to move on.
