Atlantic Media Company president Justin Smith announced today that Steve Clemons has joined The Atlantic as Editor-in-Chief of AtlanticLIVE and Washington Editor-At-Large for The Atlantic.

Clemons, who comes to The Atlantic from the think tank New America Foundation, was one of Washington’s early political bloggers, publishing Washington Note, which will now be included in the family of blogs at TheAtlantic.com. Clemons will also write more broadly for the website and occasionally for the magazine.

“Both James Bennet and I are delighted to welcome Steve to our teams,” said Elizabeth Baker Keffer, vice president of The Atlantic and president of AtlanticLive, in a press release. “It is a rare opportunity to add such a senior talent and we know that Steve will lift our enterprise to a new level of ambition.”
