Politico Names New Newsletter Authors

Two heads are better than one.

Politico has announced that Anna Palmer and Jake Sherman will take over its Playbook newsletter starting July 11.

The duo are succeeding Mike Allen, who in January said he was leaving the company.

In a memo, Politico editor John Harris said Allen was being replaced with two reporters because Playbook had become much bigger than a newsletter.

“Playbook, which began connected unmistakably to a single voice, is now a global brand,” wrote Harris. “Playbook has transformed the way in which political and policy news is consumed. It has evolved into a best-in-class suite of newsletters at the national and local levels as well as a platform for live journalism through Playbook events.”
