Politico Will Launch Local D.C. Web Site; Former Post.com Editor To Lead

Politico owner Robert Allbritton will be launching a local website focused on D.C. news, The New Republic reports. At the helm: Jim Brady, former editor of Washingtonpost.com.

It’s “his most direct challenge to The Washington Post since launching Politico,” TNR says.

Politico, of course, was founded by two Post veterans, John Harris and Jim VandeHei, and recently, former Post editor Bill Hamilton joined Politico. Long-time intern Kendra Marr jumped to Politico earlier this year. And so on and so on.
