Politico Media Goes Live Tomorrow

The Capital New York/Politico media team merger is here.

In what could be thought of as the media version of a soft opening, a new Politico Twitter handle appeared yesterday, promising the Thursday debut of Politico Media, a venture that combines the media reporting houses of Politico and Capital New York into one new unit.

This is the realization of a plan that was announced in April alongside Politico’s international and statewide expansion plans.

Peter Sterne, Capital New York reporter today, Politico Media reporter tomorrow, provided details in a tweet. The merged staff will include: Alex Weprin, Joe Pompeo, Jeremy Barr, Kelsey Sutton, Dylan Byers and Hadas Gold.
