Allison Silver Named Executive Editor of Opinion at Thomson Reuters

Allison Silver, the former opinion editor at Politico, has a new job. According to Romenesko, she’s been named executive editor of opinion at Thomson Reuters. Tuesday will be her last day at Politico.

According to the site, John Harris, the editor-in-chief at Politico explained in a memo:

“Tapping into an extensive network of writers, and pursuing her own eclectic interests, Allison put POLITICO in the middle of many Washington debates in a way that we had not been before, which is what she promised in our discussions upon her arrival three years ago. She always pushed for better display for her authors, and for better ways, such as specially commissioned artwork, to illustrate opinion pieces and draw the reader’s eye to them….Her big shoes are being filled — temporarily — by managing editor Bill Nichols on a fill-in basis while we ponder our long-term choices about opinion.”

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.
