PrintDefense One executive editor Kevin Baron today announced the hires of Gordon Lubold and Marcus Weisgerber.

Lubold joins from Foreign Policy, where he launched it’s daily newsletter “Situation Report.” He also did the same for POLITICO with its Morning Defense tip sheet. Now with Defense One, he’ll be at it again, helping to launch its own daily newsletter.

“Gordon is an insatiable reporter with more energy and enthusiasm for national security journalism than anyone I know,” said Baron. “He’s connected and respected among the military and national security community in a way that is unmatched among his peers.

Weisgerber joins the Atlantic Media property from Defense News, where he served as a Pentagon correspondent and covered the U.S. military through a policy, acquisition, and budget lens.

“Marcus has a true talent for shining a light on the big picture trends and tensions between government and industry leaders, and the pivot to the global marketplace of a multibillion dollar arms industry supplying global conflicts,” added Baron. “Marcus has the unique experience and foresight to report on where industry is heading and why. And I expect him to pull no punches.”
