Marc Ambinder Departs Atlantic Media

Marc Ambinder, a White House Correspondent for the National Journal and Contributing Editor for The Atlantic, is taking “a pause from daily journalism” and departing Atlantic Media to work on other projects. Ambinder tweeted earlier, “So I’m taking a bit of a pause from daily journalism, leaving the superlative @nationaljournal on Dec 31. It’s all good. & I’ll still Tweet.”

Politico reports that Ron Fournier, the Editor-in-Chief of the National Journal, wrote in a memo that he was hopeful Ambinder would return one day.

“I walked away from journalism once and came back,” said Fournier. “It’s my hope that Marc returns to the cause soon, but that is selfish of me. What we all really want is for Marc and his family to be healthy and happy regardless of the path he chooses.”

Edmund Andrews Joins National Journal Group

National Journal Group has hired Edmund Andrews as managing editor for economics, taxes, and budget.

Andrews had a distinguished career at The New York Times, serving from 1992 to 2009 as an economic correspondent. He is currently senior Washington correspondent for the Fiscal Times

“Ed Andrews has distinguished himself with a unique talent for injecting insight and clarity into the murkiest of economic waters,” said National Journal Group editor-in-chief Ron Fournier. “As we go through historic economic changes, Ed’s abilities and experience will be critical to both our financial reporting team and to our audience.”

While at The New York Times, Andrews covered some of the events that shaped the past two decades: emergence of capitalism in central Europe and Russia, the dot-come bubble and burst, and the mortgage meltdown.

In 2009, Andrews used that insight to author Busted: Life Inside the Great Mortgage Meltdown.

In addition to his current work for the Fiscal Times, Andrews is a senior adviser to the Georgetown University Center for Financial Institutions, Policy and Governance.

With Patsy at the helm, we will take our fantastic collection of talent and turn it into a digital-first newsroom team producing at the highest level every single day.”

Wilson has three decades of experience at Reuters in Washington as a general news correspondent, desk editor, White House correspondent, political correspondent, editor in charge of politics and domestic policy, and editor in charge of foreign policy and national security. She has covered eight presidential elections, four G7 summits, and three APEC summits. Wilson also has interviewed four presidents, including President Obama.
