The Post’s National Desk

A number of you have written in confused about how Rajiv Chandrasekaran’s recent promotion affects the Washington Post’s National Desk. To help you out, here’s the pecking order, in order of rank:

    1. Susan Glasser, AME/National

    2. Bill Hamilton (National politics editor) and Rajiv Chandrasekaran (National Editor). Rajiv will oversee all other national coverage more generally, including national security, Supreme Court, science, the Post’s bureaus, etc.

    3. Tim Curran (National politics editor) and a half dozen other assignment editors.

    4. Lowly reporters.

What’s the difference between Tim and Bill? Curran has the same job that John Harris had before he left last winter. Curran is responsible for running the coverage day in and day out (assigning and editing political stories). Hamilton is a rank above Tim and oversees politics coverage more generally, focusing broadly on enterprise, deeper stories, longer-term planning, etc.

That is 30% more than CBS’s “Face the Nation”, 44% more than ABC’s “This Week” and a 175% advantage over FOX, representing the “program’s best total viewer delivery in almost a year.”

  • NBC announced its plan for State of the Union coverage on Tuesday, including Brian Williams leading the network news coverage. He will be joined by Tim Russert. Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews will co-anchor MSNBC coverage. Also in the mix are Campbell Brown live from the House Chamber, David Gregory from the White House, Jim Miklaszewski from the Pentagon, Chip Reid from Capitol Hill and Chief Foreign Affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell.

  • C-SPAN also announced coverage plans starting at 8 p.m. with “a live studio program and guests who will preview” the address. At 8:45 p.m., C-SPAN takes viewers inside the House chamber and following the speech, C-SPAN will have reactions from Members of Congress, editorial writers and call-in viewers.

  • Baltimore Business Journal reports that Patuxent Publishing Co. bought ZIP Publishing “for an undisclosed sum. Zip publishes The View community newspapers which are distributed in Elkridge, Catonsville, Arbutus, Ellicott City, and portions of western Howard County.”
