Beth Reinhard heading to National Journal
Very sad news: The Miami Herald's Beth Reinhard, a great reporter and terrific person, is moving to National Journal after this crazy election wraps up. Despite her penchant for inappropriate, off-color jokes, I'll miss her a ton.
"For twelve years, Beth has been a leading political writer for one of the largest newspapers in an ultra-battleground state," said National Journal Group Editor-in-Chief Ron Fournier. "During that time, she has proven herself to be both an old-school story-breaker and a writer of of uncommon authority and grace. We're thrilled to have her taking on such a critical role in our newsroom."
"Beth Reinhard has the skill, the wit, the insight, and above all the passion for the game that makes a great political correspondent," said Ron Brownstein, National Journal Group Editorial Director. "The only thing she lacks is the national audience she deserves. We look forward to providing that at National Journal, and we know our audience will benefit tremendously from the fresh voice and fresh perspective she will bring to the national political debate."
From National Journal's release: Reinhard is the latest in a growing list of talented writers, reporters, and analysts joining National Journal Group. In the last several weeks, National Journal Group has announced several important new additions, including former Fox News correspondent Major Garrett, Newsweek's Michael Hirsh, veteran magazine writer and editor Matt Cooper, political analyst Matthew Dowd, The Atlantic's Marc Ambinder, USA Today's Aamer Madhani, the Wall Street Journal's Yochi Dreazen, Sue Davis, and Fawn Johnson, Politico's Josh Kraushaar, Coral Davenport, and Tim Alberta, the Tribune Washington Bureau's Jim Tankersley, Campaigns and Elections' Jeremy Jacobs, Modern Healthcare's Matt Dobias, and more. Further announcements will be coming in the next days and weeks. National Journal Group, which includes premium publications such as National Journal, CongressDaily, Hotline, The Almanac of American Politics, and Global Security Newswire, is undergoing a transformation that will build upon its reputation for intelligence and depth, infusing it with currency and speed.
