CNN Digital Politics Hires Metzler from U.S. News

unnamed2

The digital hiring spree in CNN’s Washington bureau continues today with news that Rebekah Metzler will exit U.S. News & World Report for a gig at CNN. Currently a senior news editor, Metzler will take the role of breaking news editor for CNN Digital Politics.

For those of you counting, Metzler is CNN Digital Politics’ 200,698th hire in the past two months. I kid. But it seems that way, no?

Since poaching Politico‘s Rachel Smolkin and naming her executive editor this summer, the network has really been bulking up their digital team. You may recall that in addition to Smolkin, CNN snagged three more from Politico – Steven SloanJedd Rosche and Eric Bradner.  They also made big name hires like Chris Moody from Yahoo!, Ashley Codianni from Mashable and Stephen Collinson from AFP, as well as reporters and digital producers from WaPo, The Hill and C-SPAN.

U.S. News’ Kimberly Palmer Helps Discover Your Inner Entrepreneur

Economy of You coverU.S. News & World Report Senior Money Editor Kimberly Palmer just came out with the new book The Economy of You: Discover Your Inner Entrepreneur and Recession-Proof Your Life. Recognizing that journalism offers little job security, Palmer jumped on the microbusiness bandwagon and developed a series of financial planners.

The Economy of You recounts everyday people who are liberating themselves from financial strain by creating their own business as a supplemental income. In it, readers will find concrete guidelines for launching a rewarding businesses of their own, including: tips for figuring out the ideal side gig, advice on juggling a fledgling enterprise and a full-time job, branding and marketing basics that bring results, and what and when to offer for free (unfortunately her answers isn’t EVERYTHING and ALWAYS).

Palmer is also the author of Generation Earn: The Young Professional’s Guide to Spending, Investing, and Giving Back and has appeared on NBC’s Today Show, CNBC, CNN, and local television and radio shows across the country to talk about making smart money decisions.

U.S. News Acquires The Run 2016

20130309-204114

In a recent post on The RUN 2016, site creator David Catanese announced its recent acquision by U.S. News & World Report. The site was created in March 2013 as a one-stop-shop for the most important early machinations in the already developing race for the White House and offers a mix of crucial news bits, counterintuitive analysis and original on-the-ground reporting.

While control is being handed over to U.S. News, Catanese will remain intricately involved, as a senior politics writer for the outlet and as lead contributor to The RUN 2016.

The RUN will officially switch over to the U.S. News banner sometime next month and will feature some alterations to its look and design. That said, its mission will remain the same.
