NJ Is Totally Psyched to Get Richard Just

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…

NJ to Initiate Magazine Redesign In Wake of Kushner’s Exit

He was also the leader in getting NJ‘s recent “Gay Washington” special issue together, and conducted their interview with Barney Frank.

…a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – the chance to reshape and rebuild one of Washington’s most enduring brands for a new generation of readers. The executive editor will take the lead role in the redesign of National Journal’s magazine and then oversee all aspects of editing and producing it.

Kushner’s last day at NJ is February 12; he begins at WaPo on February 24th.

Changes A-coming to National Journal

Tim Grieve announced yesterday that more changes are coming to the National Journal. In an email to staff, he announced two new hires and two promotions. Andie Coller will be joining NJ as deputy magazine editor and Brendan Sasso as a technology correspondent.

 

Coller started her career in New York, working at the New York Post before jumping to Politico, where she has been an editor. Sasso is the lead writer for the Hillicon Valley blog at The Hill and is the second reporter from The Hill to leave for the National Journal in the last month.

Grieve also announced two promotions. Patrick Reis is moving into a new role as NJ’s Policy Editor with responsibility for health care, tech,  and defense. Matt Berman is also taking on new responsibilities as the editor of NJ’s wire team.

The Hill‘s Ben Geman Picked Up By National Journal

In a memo to staff today, National Journal Editor-in-Chief Tim Grieve announced that Ben Geman has been hired away from The Hill to join their energy team:

It’s no exaggeration to say that I’ve been trying to hire Ben for almost four years now. And if you follow energy news, you know why. From his perch at The Hill — and particularly the E-2 Wire — Ben has been breaking news and giving his competitors fits on a daily basis.  It will be a great to have him on our team.

Geman has covered the energy beat at The Hill for the past four years and will report to work at NJ on December 2nd. Congrats from FishbowlDC, Ben, on the new gig!

And he’s practically bursting with Christmas joy.

So much so, he’s whisking the staff to the conference room today at 3 p.m. to celebrate. National Journal President Bruce Gottlieb, is also in good spirits. In a note to staff, he declared, “Ron Fournier’s story this morning is entitled ‘The Beginning of the End for Washington.’  Here at the Watergate—even with all that is going on in this city today—it feels like the beginning of a very exciting new chapter at National Journal.”
