Washington Post‘s Brad Plumer, Sarah Kliff, Max Fisher Joining Ezra Klein’s Vox Venture (HuffPost)
The Washington Post‘s Brad Plumer and Sarah Kliff are joining Ezra Klein’s new venture to be launched with Vox Media, according to newsroom sources familiar with the plans. Plumer covers environmental policy issues for the Post‘s Wonkblog, which was run by Klein until his departure last month. Kliff reports on health care policy. Klein, Plumer and Kliff declined to comment, as did a Post spokeswoman. FishbowlDC Kliff made the announcement via Twitter: “So some news! I’m leaving the Washington Post to join Vox Media.” Politico / Dylan Byers on Media Nearly two weeks after Klein’s departure, the Post has yet to name a replacement editor for its Wonkblog page — a delay that casts doubt on the blog’s viability in the post-Klein era.

Politico Pro To Debut In February

This morning Politico announced plans to launch their subscription-based news service, Politico Pro, in February.  According to an official press release, Politico Pro will offer users “high-impact, high-velocity reporting on the politics of energy, technology, and health care reform.”  The new reporting venture will be fueled by the work of 40 journalists, much like the original Politico staff was organized during its inception in January 2007.

Politico executive editor Jim VandeHei believes this new project will provide subscribers with the no-nonsense content they are looking for:

“Political and policy professionals want someone to cut through the clutter, tell them what really matters and tell them first.  We have a proven track record for doing just that – and Politico Pro will build on it.”

Politico Pro editor-in-chief Tim Grieve has just begun to fill out his team, however some key positions are already in place.
