Foreign Policy Makes Big Announcements

Seeing as Foreign Policy Magazine lost its Editor-in-Chief Susan Glasser last week to Politico, the higher ups have to be feeling pleased that they have major announcements to share in a staff meeting today at 10 a.m.

This morning members of FP‘s staff are learning that the publication has hired a new editorial leadership team. In the coming weeks, the site will also get a facelift in the form of a “major redesign.” At the top of the leadership pack is Noah Shachtman of Wired‘s Danger Room. He’ll be Executive Editor of News.

Whether this is hype or not, the news comes across as energetic and positive in a morning release. Schactman will join FP’s Peter Scoblic and Ben Pauker in “key roles as the organization builds on the momentum gained through record-breaking readership numbers, an exploding digital presence, and nationally-recognized, award-winning coverage on the world’s leading global issues.”

Scoblic will will be Executive Editor, Analysis and Commentary, and responsible for Foreign Policy magazine and ForeignPolicy.com’s roster of columnists and essayists. Pauker has been promoted from Senior Editor to Managing Editor for the website and magazine. He’ll oversee contributors, foreign dispatches, and newsletters.

ForeignPolicy.com is celebrating yet another record-breaking month, thanks to a little help from some canine contributors.  We told you last month how Rebecca Frankel‘s “War Dogs” photo blog went viral after it was discovered that some of the heroic military mutts she featured helped to bring down Osama bin Laden. According to a memo from Susan Glasser, Editor of Foreign Policy, the war dogs raked in an astonishing 8.2 million pageviews for May -  more views on its own than everything published on the site for the same month last year.

The outcome?  A whopping 21.4 million total pageviews and 2.9 million unique visitors to ForeignPolicy.com last month.   Congrats to FP, Frankel and your furry friends!

Things You Might Have Missed…

Terrorism has gone to the dogs: ForeignPolicy.com Deputy Managing Editor Rebecca Frankel‘s photo essay about the kick-ass canines known as “war dogs”  went viral yesterday when it was discovered that one of the subjects of her ongoing feature helped take down Osama bin Laden. Fun Fact:  Did you know that in early 2010, the U.S. Army had over 2,800 active-duty dogs deployed?  Don’t miss FP’s amazing stories and photo gallery dedicated to these patriotic pooches.

Happy Hour: Christine Delargy finally proved her theory that ‘weeknight boozing’ and ‘winning the day’ are directly related.  While partaking in an after-work libation at Morton’s last night, the CBSer spotted one John Boehner smoking a few cigs and enjoying a bottle of red wine.  The result of the random encounter was today’s scoop that the Speaker of the House chose not to watch the first GOP presidential debate.

Huckabee Hoopla: On May 5th, RCP’s Erin McPike reported that Fox News brass gave former Governor Mike Huckabee, a contributor to the network,  until the end of the month to decide whether he will retain his contract or make a run for the presidency.  In response to the story, Fox News VP Bill Shine issued a statement saying, “There’s no truth whatsoever to this report.”  Today, RCP’s Carl Cannon fired back in defense of McPike.
