Atlantic Media Chairman and CEO David Bradley announced today that James Bennet and Bob Cohn have been named Co-Presidents of The Atlantic.

Top Execs Promoted at Atlantic Media

Atlantic Media Chairman and CEO David Bradley announced some big changes at the top of their Washington divisions today. The top-of-the-masthead shuffle is partly a response to the imminent departure of Bruce Gottlieb, who is currently serving as President of National Journal and General Council for Atlantic Media. He will be returning to his roots in policy and government affairs.

National Journal Chief Revenue Office Poppy MacDonald has been promoted to Publisher and Co-President of that publication. She will take on some of Gottlieb’s responsibilities, while continuing to lead NJ’s revenue line, as well as business development, marketing, and advertising. She will also oversee National Journal Live, the pub’s events business.

And NJ Editor-in-Chief Tim Grieve will share Presidential responsibility with MacDonald, adding Co-President to his title. He will be responsible for editorial strategy and new editorial products for the brand.

National Journal will also be grouped together with fellow Atlantic Media publication Government Executive under the unified leadership of Tim Hartman.

Hartman, current President of Government Executive Media Group (GEMG), has been named CEO of Atlantic Media’s Washington divisions.  He will now add National Journal Group to his portfolio and continue to lead Government Executive as he has for the past two years. The GEMG umbrella also includes online publications Defense One and NextGov.

And finally, Deputy General Counsel Aretae Wyler will succeed Gottlieb as General Counsel of Atlantic Media. She will also continue to serve as Bradley’s chief of staff.

A Reception Fit for This Town?

Seems like a party NYT‘s Mark Leibvoich might want to attend.

On Sept. 10 Bloomberg‘s Margaret Carlson will open her home for a reception for one of Atlantic Media‘s newest hires, Emily Lenzner, who is filling the shoes of Linda Douglass as head of communications.

Politico’s ‘Morning Energy’ Shifts Into Raw Masculine Muscle

If you like extremely masculine metaphors this is the announcement for you.

Starting in February, Politico‘s Morning Energy is becoming part of Politico Pro, a new subscription-based service that claims it will “deliver high-impact, high velocity” coverage of energy, technology and health care reform.

As explained to a note that went out today from Politico Pro Editor Tim Grieve, this will be “essential reading” for policy professionals. “Think of it as Morning Energy on steroids,” the memo says. This means insider coverage from Darren Samuelsohn, Josh Voorhees, Darren Goode, Robin Bravender and the rest of the energy team.

This will include:

*Instant alerts

*The latest energy headlines

*A subscriber-only afternoon briefing from Politico Pro Energy Editor Dan Berman.

The powerful male metaphors continue. Politico Pro subscribers will allegedly receive a “more muscular” version of Morning Energy. As with everything Politico, news comes insanely early. There will be a Politico Pro Morning Energy at both 6a.m. (for those who need their Morning Energy while they’re still dreaming) and 9 a.m. (for those who don’t need their Morning Energy before their shower and waffles).

The release instructs interested parties to contact Sales Director Poppy MacDonald.
