Atlantic Media’s ‘Defense One’ Plans to Double Editorial and Business Staff

PrintDefense One today announced that it plans to more than double its number of dedicated staff with the addition of 11 new full-time editorial and business employees. The announcement comes days after the Atlantic vertical celebrated it’s one-year anniversary, in which it already doubled its staff from three to six and experienced record monthly traffic of 800,000 page views and nearly 600,000 unique visitors during its first year.

As part of the expansion, executive editor Kevin Baron plans to hire three new beat reporters as well as two regular contributors. The U.S. defense and national security-focused brand will also add a general manager, associate publisher and events director along with dedicated sales and marketing persons.

“We’ve seen in the last year a tremendous appetite for the kind of journalism, ideas commentary, and events that has become the hallmark of the Defense One brand,” said Baron. “We did what we came to do in year one, and now this investment will enable us to expand our reporting on the national security community.”

Tim Hartman, CEO of National Journal Group that oversees Defense One, will lead the effort.

Atlantic Media Chairman and CEO David Bradley announced today that James Bennet and Bob Cohn have been named Co-Presidents of The Atlantic.

Bennet will retain his current title of Editor-in-Chief while Cohn will take on the title of COO as well as co-president. He will transition from digital editor to preside over all business operations, including AtlanticLIVE and The Wire.

Bradley also announced that Kevin Delaney and Jay Lauf would become Co-President’s of Quartz, Atlantic’s digital business publication. They are and will continue to serve as Editor-in-Chief and Publisher respectively.

“With these promotions, we are all but complete in installing a next generation of leadership at Atlantic Media,” Bradley said.

Top Execs Promoted at Atlantic Media

Atlantic Media Chairman and CEO David Bradley announced some big changes at the top of their Washington divisions today. The top-of-the-masthead shuffle is partly a response to the imminent departure of Bruce Gottlieb, who is currently serving as President of National Journal and General Council for Atlantic Media. He will be returning to his roots in policy and government affairs.

National Journal Chief Revenue Office Poppy MacDonald has been promoted to Publisher and Co-President of that publication. She will take on some of Gottlieb’s responsibilities, while continuing to lead NJ’s revenue line, as well as business development, marketing, and advertising. She will also oversee National Journal Live, the pub’s events business.

And NJ Editor-in-Chief Tim Grieve will share Presidential responsibility with MacDonald, adding Co-President to his title. He will be responsible for editorial strategy and new editorial products for the brand.

National Journal will also be grouped together with fellow Atlantic Media publication Government Executive under the unified leadership of Tim Hartman.

Hartman, current President of Government Executive Media Group (GEMG), has been named CEO of Atlantic Media’s Washington divisions.  He will now add National Journal Group to his portfolio and continue to lead Government Executive as he has for the past two years. The GEMG umbrella also includes online publications Defense One and NextGov.

And finally, Deputy General Counsel Aretae Wyler will succeed Gottlieb as General Counsel of Atlantic Media. She will also continue to serve as Bradley’s chief of staff.
