National Journal’s Editor-in-Chief Tim Grieve announced today that they have hired a managing editor to oversee their magazine. Amanda Cormier comes on board as Editor Richard Just and Deputy Editor Andie Coller begin their redesign of NJ mag. She previously wrote for the online magazine BKLYNR, and has also worked at the New Yorker.
Two more hires were announced as well. Jason Plautz will be the new energy reporter. He is currently a reporter at Environment and Energy News after having worked at Inside Climate News and Sports Illustrated. And Emma Roller will come on board from Slate as part of NJ‘s wire team. She edited and wrote for Slate’s Weigel and Moneybox blogs, and has also interned at NPR and the Chronicle of Higher Education.
Roller starts on Monday, and Cormier and Plautz will start later in the month.
