"Bringing aboard these talented journalists is a testament to our ongoing effort to become the definitive magazine for beautifully crafted storytelling about Washington, DC and the world of politics," Just said. "We are committed to both publishing brilliant, established storytellers and to becoming the political magazine that cultivates the next generation of up-and-coming narrative journalists."

Michelle Cottle, who has been a Washington reporter for the The Daily Beast, is joining National Journal's print magazine as a Senior Writer. Before working for The Daily Beast and Newsweek, Cottle was a longtime Senior Editor at The New Republic, where her writing appeared in The Best American Political Writing of 2009.

Additionally, Simon van Zuylen-Wood, a staff writer for Philadelphia magazine who has also worked for The New Republic and written for Politico MagazineEthan Epstein of The Weekly Standard; and Daniel Libit, formerly a reporter for Politico, will be Contributing Writers to the magazine.

These journalists join existing National Journal writers and contributors Peter Beinart, Marin Cogan, Shane Goldmacher, and Alex Seitz-Wald under the leadership of Grieve, Just, Deputy Editor Andie Coller, and Managing Editor Amanda Cormier.  Joseph Heroun, an award-winning Creative and Design Director, who has held leading positions in brand and editorial development at Men's Health, Women's Health, Boston Magazine and The New Republic, is guiding the art direction for the redesign effort.

The magazine redesign is part of the next phase of a larger, long-term refresh of the National Journal brand, which kicked off last fall with the successful relaunch of its website.

April's online readership was up 55 percent over last April, making it the highest online readership for the website in 2014.
