Wednesday night at Morton’s Steakhouse on Connecticut Avenue, MediaDC CEO Lou Ann Sabatier introduced Washington Examiner’s new editorial director Hugo Gurdon to friends and members of the advertising community.
“Under his leadership, we can complete the transition we began in 2013 to a national source for news and policy analysis,” said Sabatier. “He is bringing added depth and authority to Washington Examiner content.”
Gurdon told guests to expect a staffing increase of reporters to cover breaking news with a focus on defense and national security, energy and environment, healthcare, technology, and money.
In July, FishbowlDC reported Gurdon’s departure from The Hill, where he served as editor in chief since 2003.
In attendance: Bill Kristol, former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, Hollywood on the Potomac’s Janet Donovan, Raptor Strategies David Bass, Magnolia Strategy’s Nick Owens, MediaDC’s Grace Paine Terzian and Alex Rosenwald
