WSJ‘s Dreazen Joins National Journal

Yochi Dreazen, national security reporter for The Wall Street Journal, is jumping ship to the National Journal, the National Journal Group announced today.
Dreazen, who had been with WSJ for 11 years, will assume the role of senior correspondent and will cover military affairs and national security for the National Journal. With WSJ, started a two-and-a-half-year stint reporting from Iraq in 2003, and has since taken multiple trips to both Iraq and Afghanistan.
“Yochi is one of the leading reporters in the area of military and national security affairs, one of the most important areas of coverage for a serious news organization like the National Journal Group,” said National Journal Group editor-in-chief Ron Fournier in a statement. Fournier also said that additional new hires are in the works at NJ.
The National Journal has made several key moves in the past few months, including the hire of Fournier from the Associated Press. The new hiring streak follows a major reorganization that included layoffs and the departure of several columnists in an effort to focus on the publication’s digital arm.
