RCP Claims a Boost in D.C. Presence

RealClearPolitics is proclaiming an expanded Washington presence. Today the company announced that Meg Szabo is joining the team in the newly-created position of Marketing Director in Washington DC.  Szabo joins RealClearPolitics from the National Journal Group where she was the Senior Manager of Brand Marketing.

RealClearPolitics reports that it has continued to grow its editorial staff as the site prepares for the presidential election year and cites hires from six months ago up to a few recent additions. In February, award-winning journalist Carl Cannon joined the company as Washington Editor. Shortly after Cannon’s hire, they brought on Alexis Simendinger as White House Correspondent. Also new to RealClearPolitics are Political Reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns and Assistant Editor Nicholas Hahn.

Dry quote from brass…“We’re excited to add Meg’s name to the list of top-notch professionals who’ve joined RealClearPolitics recently,” said Tom Bevan, co-founder and Executive Editor of RealClearPolitics. “We look forward to continuing to build our team of reporters, expand our exclusive coverage of politics and elections, and grow our presence inside Washington DC and all around the country.”
