Politico Nets Tampa Bay Times’ Duo Bill Duryea and Michael Kruse for New Enterprise Project

POLITICO revised logo Award-winning Tampa Bay Times’ journalists Bill Duryea and Michael Kruse are leaving the Sunshine state and taking their talents to Washington.

Politico’s Susan Glasser sent out a staff-wide email yesterday announcing the new hires for the publication’s brand new enterprise project.

Duryea, who will lead the project, has served as the Times’ national editor for nearly a decade. He also edits the Floridian, a monthly news feature magazine.Screen Shot 2014-11-19 at 5.41.13 PM

“Bill is an incredible ideas-driven editor, and in addition to the team he’s built and runs day to day he has been an adept editor drawing from talent across the newsroom in Tampa, a model we are expecting he will follow here at Politico in working to develop great enterprise stories from across the staff,” Glasser said in the email.

Kruse will be the project’s senior writer with a focus on political enterprise going into the 2016 election season. He’s currently a staff writer for the Times’ enterprise team. He has received numerous awards for his work, which has also been recognized by a number of professional journalism organizations including the Society of Professional Journalists, the Society for Features Journalism and the Associated Press Sports Editors, among others.

“In Michael, we are adding a perfect first recruit for Bill’s team; this is a duo that has a great and proven record of producing award-winning journalism together,” Glasser said. “We’re thrilled at this big new development for Politico’s journalism, and can’t wait to welcome Bill and Michael to the newsroom. “

The New POLITICO

NewPolitico

POLITICO editor, Susan Glasser, announced the unveiling of the outlet’s updated website this morning.  “Today is the formal beginning of the biggest transformation of POLITICO in eight years,” writes CEO Jim VandeHei in a memo to the staff.

The site’s reboot offers several new features, including a new homepage design with four cover stories that highlight its broad range of content — from exclusive news about the 2016 campaign to the new Republican Congress.

Another new feature is the “fully responsive design” that customizes to whatever platform you may be using: desktop, tablet or mobile. The design is intended to make it easier to share stories and content from the website.

One other feature, the POLITICO Timeline, enables you to easily scroll through the latest articles from POLITICO.

Less than a month after being named editor of POLITICO, Susan Glasser sat down with USA Today’s Rem Rieder to discuss what’s next for the Rosslyn-based political news outlet under Glasser’s reign.

“There’s tons of coverage, but it’s sliced and diced ever thinner,” Glasser told Rieder of the current media landscape. “You’ve got to come back with big, ambitious storytelling.” She went on to explain that, “Indispensability and original reporting are the engines that will fuel growth. It’s important to emphasize original reporting and insight and analysis no one else is doing.” Read more

POLITICO All-Staff Meeting Described as ‘Cult-Like’

Hundreds of POLITICOs came together at Tuesday’s all-staff meeting at The Hamilton coined “Politico Presents: Where we are and where we’re going” and since, we’ve received mixed reactions from those in attendance. While some left energized and excited for POLITICO’s future, others described the ‘event’ as a “cult-like” experience.

The meeting, first reported by The Huffington Post’s Michael Calderone, featured insight to the outlet’s European expansion in partnership with Axel Springer from editor-in-chief John Harris, CEO Jim VandeHei, and publisher Robert Allbritton.

In true POLITICO form, VandeHei interviewed Allbritton, who connected with staff by sharing stories of what he likes to do in his spare time: fly his new private plane. He also recalled childhood play dates at the White House with the daughter of President Jimmy Carter.

Mike Allen served as emcee. COO Kim Kingsley unveiled floor plans for its new Arlington office space. And recently named editor Susan Glasser spoke about other recent newsroom hires and displayed plans for an upcoming website redesign. Before dispersing to an open bar, Glasser moderated a panel consisting of Glenn Thrush, Carrie Budoff Brown, John Bresnahan, and new hire Michael Grunwald on their predictions for 2016.

The highlight for many though was a stylish new piece of wearable swag attendees walked away with.

We highly anticipate seeing this t-shirt worn proudly by the Kool-Aid sipping staff of the Rosslyn-based political news outlet. There’s no better way to subtly declare plans for world domination than fitting your army in a stylish new work sponsored gym shirt.

It just leaves us wondering…where can we get one?

TIME’s Michael Grunwald to POLITICO Magazine

POLITICO editor Susan Glasser emailed staff this morning another recent hire to the Rosslyn-based politics news outlet. TIME senior national correspondent Michael Grunwald will join POLITICO Magazine as a senior staff writer and will serve as editor-at-large of a new POLITICO project to launch in early 2015 – The Agenda – to explore ‘the intersection of politics and policy.’

“He’s a unique talent in journalism, a policy wonk at heart who also happens to be great at writing about politics, a stylist with the digging skills of an investigative reporter,” Glasser wrote to staff.

Prior to TIME, Grunwald served as a Congressional correspondent, New York bureau chief, and national investigative reporter for The Washington Post, overlapping with Glasser’s tenure there. He is a George Polk Award recipient and has also written for The Boston Globe, The New Republic, and Slate.
