Politico Searches for New Editor

Several candidates are being considered.

Politico has ramped up its search for a successor to editor Susan Glasser, who said she would be taking a new role after the upcoming presidential election.

According to The Huffington Post, candidates for the job include Politico national editor and Europe managing editor Kristin Roberts and Carrie Budoff Brown, respectively; Bloomberg News’ Washington managing editor Craig Gordon; and Daily Beast executive editor Noah Shachtman.

A Politico spokesperson wouldn’t offer HuffPost any clues into who has the inside track, only stating that the search “continues with many tremendous candidates, both internally and externally.” Tremendous!
