A piece of news that may make some over at The Atlantic gag (get it?): Politico‘s Magazine has hired Geoffrey Gagnon as its editorial director. Gagnon was a senior editor at The Atlantic. Before that he was articles editor at Boston magazine.
He starts Sept. 23.
The door swings both ways. National Journal, owned by the same publisher as The Atlantic, recently promoted Tim Grieve to Editor-in-Chief. Grieve is a former Politico editor.
CORRECTION: The previous picture we ran of Gagnon was — gasp! — not him. Internet searches proved to be faulty and we promise to be more careful in the future. The guy who we thought he was looks quite a bit different — check him out after the jump.
