CQ Roll Call is restructuring staff to take a more aggressive approach to producing digital content, according to sources inside the pub. The marquee change is the creation of a new position, Chief Content Officer, and the promotion of Roll Call Editor David Rapp to fill the role. Rapp will be the top dog in the newsroom, overseeing content across all of CQ Roll Call’s platforms, with an emphasis on engaging consumers and coordinating Roll Call’s public-facing political coverage with CQ’s professional services.
Rapp moved to Roll Call a year ago from BGOV, though he did work at CQ prior to that as editor and senior vice president.
Also as part of the reshuffling, Chief Technology Officer Dennis Arndt and Vice President of Marketing Valerie Voci will be moved to advisory roles. There should be more news on the changes at CQ Roll Call coming, so stay tuned for updates.
