Tucker Hired, Gaskell Upped as Defense One Expands

New deputy editor Stephanie Gaskell.

Atlantic Media’s new Pentagon-focused pub, Defense One, is making some internal moves. Patrick Tucker was hired earlier this week as technology editor, and today Stephanie Gaskell was promoted to deputy editor.

Tucker comes to Defense One after a nine-year stint with the The Futurist, a bimonthly magazine published by the World Future Society. Tucker most recently served as deputy editor at the magazine, which explores the technological, scientific, environmental, social and policy trends shaping our collective future.

Gaskell has been with Defense One since its inception in July 2013 as senior reporter and associate editor, and has quickly made herself indispensable. In a memo to staff, executive editor Kevin Baron was effusive in praising her.

“The move signifies Stephanie’s solid and critical role to Defense One‘s editorial content and direction since our founding,” he said. “She is the heart and soul of Defense One and our success would not have been possible without her.”

The pub also announced that they will be hiring a news editor and several reporters in the near future.

 

Atlantic Media’s Defense One Launches

It’s finally here. Atlantic Media‘s much-anticipated new site Defense One launched today, with executive editor Kevin Baron at the helm.

Other editorial staff include associate editor/senior reporter Stephanie Gaskell and reporter Kedar Pavgi along with contributors Marc Ambinder, (previously White House Correspondent for Atlantic Media’s National Journal) James Kitfield and Joshua Foust.

Defense verticals seem to be all the rage these days, with competitors like Roll Call and USA Today rushing products out on the heels of Atlantic Media’s Defense One announcement earlier this year and their all-star hiring spree. Of course, USA Today’s offeringMilitary Intelligence—is a blog that seems designed to showcase content already in the paper more than original, deep dives and Roll Call thought it was smart to turn over its military coverage to a defense contractor while expecting us to believe this “sponsored content” was as good for its readers as it was for the paper’s bottom line (and the sponsor’s profile).

So, how is Defense One now that they’ve raised the curtain? Let’s have a look…

Politico’s Gaskell To Join Defense One

Defense One, a new site from Atlantic Media, announced that Politico’s Stephanie Gaskell will join the site as a senior reporter and associate editor.

“Stephanie is a true pro, well-known across the military beat for her no-nonsense style and fair voice,” Kevin Baron, Defense One’s executive editor, said in a news release. “Having covered New York City, two wars, and now Washington, D.C., from the Pentagon to Congress and industry, Stephanie was an obvious fit for Defense One, which will benefit tremendously from her respected track record of unabashed journalism and eye for the stories that matter to readers.”
