As we reported earlier today, Richard Just has just been brought on as editor of National Journal’s magazine. And if this internal memo from Editor in Chief Tim Grieve is any indication, NJ feels they’ve scored quite a coup. Grieve is clearly stoked to bring Just on board, and though he acknowledges that Just and Deputy Editor Andie Coller have a lot of work to do to “reinvent” the mag, he also promises that “they’re going to have all the resources to do it right.”
From the memo:
This is major. Richard is one of the best magazine editors in the country. He was the editor of Newsweek. Before that, he was the editor of The New Republic. He comes to us with the strongest possible endorsements from some of the nation’s most accomplished magazine writers. And he comes to us brimming with ideas for making National Journal the most vibrant, most compelling, most essential policy-and-politics magazine anywhere.
Someone’s ears must be burning! Read the whole memo after the jump…
