TIME’s Michael Crowley to POLITICO

d12AP-1IPOLITICO editor Susan Glasser today announced that TIME’s Michael Crowley will join the Rosslyn-based political outlet as a senior foreign affairs correspondent. Crowley currently serves as a chief foreign affairs writer for TIME. At POLITICO, he’ll focus on the Obama administration’s foreign policy and Washington’s reach internationally.

His hire also reunites him with POLITICO’s new executive editor Peter Canellos, who hired Crowley to the Boston Globe in the 90s.

Prior to joining TIME, Crowley wrote for The New Republic. He’s also written for New York magazine, GQ, and Slate.

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.

Peter Canellos Named Executive Editor of POLITICO

A Look Back at Susan Glasser’s Ambitions for POLITICO Magazine

Just one year ago, Foreign Policy editor-in-chief Susan Glasser joined POLITICO to launch its magazine. Today, she was named editor of the Rosslyn-based news outlet.

Around the time of the magazine’s November debut, referring to its inaugural cover that portrayed a look into the Oval Office through a key hole, but more broadly in terms of POLITICO and the magazine, Glasser then said, “It’s to take readers as much as possible through the Washington key hole. To take you into the rooms you want to be in. Into the rooms where decisions are make. Into the rooms where there’s not always transparency and accountability.”

Susan Glasser has been named editor of POLITICO, according to a memo issued this morning from the Rosslyn-based political news outlet’s CEO Jim VandeHei, editor-in-chief John Harris, and COO Kim Kingsley.

“Susan is among the smartest, most innovative and creative editors around,” write VanDeHei, Harris, and Kingsley.

The memo says that she will soon name an executive editor, the position of Rick Berke, who announced his resignation earlier this month.

“Our challenge is to extend our dominance in this space and expand our reach − in Washington, key states and the world,” add VanDeHei, Harris, and Kingsley. ”That is why we are redesigning our digital properties, redoing all of our technology, expanding into Europe, exploring new state versions of POLITICO and growing our operation and leadership here.”

Glasser, who joined POLITICO Magazine as editor in late 2013, worked for years with VandeHei, Harris, and Kingsley at The Washington Post, prior to her forced departure in 2008.
