Author Wants Sen. Rockefeller To Read Her Book

CQ Roll Call‘s Rebecca Gale celebrated the official launch of her new novel Trying at The Science Club last night. Though the venue was a bit cozy and broiling (i.e. perfect for a hot yoga class), plenty of Gale’s newsroom colleagues and friends showed up to offer support.

Asked if there was one journalist Gale would want to read her book, she named co-worker Neda Semnani. “She gives great book reviews,” Gale said, adding that Semnani, who co-writes the Heard on the Hill gossip column, would offer an “honest assessment” of the book.

Gale also named her former boss Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va) as someone who should read it. “He would love it,” she said. (That’s somewhat intriguing, considering the book is a love story involving government secrets. Hmm…)

There were plenty of finger foods and bevys at the soiree, much of which was unidentifiable at first glance. But the best part was the tiny cupcakes, decorated with little edible versions of Gale’s book.

The cupcakes, we’re told, were enjoyed by CQ Roll Call Publisher Peter Anthony‘s two young boys, who were told upon entering by Anthony to “stand right here” against a wall… Read more

CQ-Roll Call: A Personnel Update

From: Laurie Battaglia
To: CQ-RollCall-All Sent: Fri Mar 19, 2010
Subject: Advertising Announcement; We’ve got several people announcements to make in advertising.

Here goes: I’m thrilled to announce that Kelly Lindner will be rejoining CQ-Roll Call on Monday, March 22nd as our new VP of Events and Consumer Advertising. Kelly was one of the bright stars in advertising at Roll Call, where she initially began in consumer sales, and then moved into corporate and advocacy sales. We are incredibly lucky to have her back in Washington. Unfortunately, that means Connie Witherspoon is leaving. Both she and Holly Maine will be joining Victoria Monroe at National Journal. Holly’s last day was this past Wednesday, March 17th, and Connie will be departing next Friday.

Cliff McKinney will become Vice President, National Advertising Sales. In addition to his current role of managing national print operations, he will assume Holly’s online role as well.

Joining Kelly will be Marie Kilroy, who will be moving from her role in advertising marketing (and events) to consumer advertising. For those of you who know Marie we’re very excited to have her move into this new role.

We are planning a renewed focus on the consumer side of the business, from retail to classifieds, so look for more details as we move forward on this initiative. Subi Issa will be taking on a newly created role Operations. Creating a stronger infrastructure is key to our continued success and growth, and this new role has been created to do just that.

Our traffic team will now grow to four, relieving the burden that has been placed on the team, which currently includes Subi, Laura Weeda, and Christina Chao.

Please join me in congratulating the team as they move into new roles and welcoming Kelly on her return this coming Monday. And as always, if you have any questions, please ask.

Laurie Battaglia, EVP and Managing Director CQ-Roll Call Group
