Dan Berman Will Join National Journal; Ben Pershing Promoted

National JournalDan Berman will be joining National Journal as an assistant managing editor, announced Editor-in-Chief and President Tim Grieve today in a staff memo.

Berman most recently worked as the White House editor for POLITICO, and will now oversee coverage of Congress, the White House and policy for NJ.

“This is a great hire for us,” said Tim Grieve in the staff memo. “I know Dan’s skills first hand: He worked hand-in-hand with me in creating Politico Pro, first as Energy Editor and then as Deputy Managing Editor. In those roles, he was an energetic advocate for and creator of high-quality, high-impact journalism. And Dan has continued to be that kind of editor even as he’s grown through different positions in his post-Politico Pro life — first as Politico’s Money and Politics Editor and now as its White House Editor.”

Additionally, Grieve announced the promotion of Ben Pershing to editor of National Journal Daily.

“Dan will work very closely with Ben Pershing, who is taking on a big new role as Editor of National Journal Daily,” continued Grieve. “As many of you have heard, Sophie Yarborough is leaving us this month to take a new position at The Washington Post. We have asked Ben to take on the role of Editor of NJ Daily to lead the effort to reimagine the publication for a new era. Ben is a natural for this. He has worked wonders with our Congress team since arriving at National Journal earlier this year, and he’s a veteran journalist with a deep understanding of Congress and the kind of reporting that will have an impact inside the Capitol and around the country.”
