Steve Shepard to Help Launch New Politico Vertical

politico-logo-2013Politico is expanding its subscription offerings with the launch of Campaign Pro, which is described as ”a vertical aimed at political, PAC and campaign professionals.” To help the debut along, Steve Shepard is leaving his spot as editor of National Journal’s Hotline, where he had been for the past five years, to join Politico.

Along with Shepard, others working on Campaign Pro include Mike Zapler (Politico’s politics editor); and political reporters Reid Epstein, Emily Schultheis, Juana Summers and Ellie Titus.

In a memo to staffers, Politico’s executive editor and Capital New York’s president Jim VandeHei and Politico’s deputy editor-in-chief Danielle Jones could barely hold back their excitement about the new vertical:

This is a great example of how our business model works. We can produce a product that is absolutely essential to a paying audience – and then utilize that team and coverage to write even stronger, better informed stories for our broader audience on the main site.

Politico Ends ‘On Media’ Blog

Today is the last day of Politico’s On Media blog, per a post on the site. Bill Nichols, Managing Editor of the site, explains in a memo that media coverage will be added to the blog maintained by Ben Smith, with Emily Schultheis and recent hire Dylan Byers contributing.

More on the change:

Our media blog in its current form will end, which has the happy result of giving Keach Hagey free reign to concentrate totally on the long-form journalism she does so well. While Ben and Dylan will concentrate on viewing the media through the prism of the 2012 campaign, Keach will be able to roam throughout the media landscape. Two of her most recent stories — a terrific tick-tock on the Post’s Marco Rubio piece and a sharp look at liberal journalists getting caught up in the Occupy Wall Street movement — are testament to her keen eye and writing skills.
