Emmy award-winning journalist Rob Hendin has joined The Atlantic’s event business AtlanticLive as executive producer. This is a new role at AtlanticLive.

Hendin comes to AtlanticLive from CBS News, where he served as Face The Nation’s senior producer since 2011.

“Rob has a rare constellation of skills and experience that make him a perfect fit for the job,” said AtlanticLive president Margaret Low Smith, in an announcement. “On top of being a first class journalist, he is a polymath who reads widely and is as passionate about science and history and food as he is about Washington politics.”
