National Journal EIC Tim Grieve announced this morning a slew of staffing changes in an internal memo obtained by FishbowlDC.
“I’m not sure how this happened, but 2014 is almost upon us – and 2016 isn’t far off,” wrote Grieve. “We’re making big moves to gear up for both, and I want to share some of the early details with you now.”
Among the changes: Josh Kraushaar, who’s been running Hotline will become Political Editor for National Journal. Kraushaar’s post at Hotline will be assumed by Steve Shepard. Under a revamped Hotline beat structure, Kevin Brennan will cover the Senate races; Scott Bland will follow the House; and Julie Sobel will cover presidential campaigns while producing “Wake Up Call.”
In addition, Sarah Mimms will move from Hotline to the Daily. Alex Roarty will join Hotline as chief political correspondent where he’ll write for “Hotline on Call” and continue to be a regular presence in National Journal magazine, National Journal Daily and NationalJournal.com. And Karyn Bruggeman will become Hotline’s governors’ race analyst.
Congrats to all on your new positions.
