CQ Roll Call Adds Newsletter, Logo; Drops Hyphen, Group

In a memo today, Laurie Battaglia thanked the CQ Roll Call staff for their hard work during the midterms, the refreshed RollCall.com website and the launch of a free daily e-mail newsletter by David Hawkings, called “CQ Roll Call’s Daily Briefing.”  

Additionally, Battaglia distributed gifts carrying the new combined CQ Roll Call logo – you’ll notice that they opted for a bumblebee look (I kid) while dropping the hyphen and “Group” from the company’s brand.  

Sign up for Hawkings’ new newser here,  more about the combined company here, and Battaglia’s full memo after the jump.

Subject: Thank You!

Dear Colleagues,

This has been a momentous week.

First, I want to thank the Editorial team for their fantastic coverage of the elections. They did an amazing job, put in long hours, made TV appearances and constantly delivered top quality news that our readers have come to expect. I am very proud of their hard work.

Second, we launched a new daily e-mail newsletter, CQ Roll Call’s Daily Briefing, which delivers readers the latest happenings in Congress and around Washington and offers a sample of the day’s exclusive stories from CQ and Roll Call publications at no extra cost. We also launched a refreshed RollCall.com with many improved features and a redesigned Politics section that will take the place of CQ Politics as the center for our expert political coverage. Each involved much planning and execution and I want to thank everyone involved in making these launches successful.

You’ll also notice a few gifts on your desk this morning carrying the new CQ Roll Call logo that I revealed at the Town Hall last week. I think the logo looks great and I hope you enjoy the goodies.

I want to thank each and every one of you for your hard work in making all of these things happen. Your steadfast commitment to our mission helps us improve the quality we deliver to our clients every day. And we’re not stopping there.

I look forward to working with you to continue making CQ Roll Call the best it can be.
