National Journal Names Scott Bland Hotline Editor-in-Chief

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 3, 2014 -- National Journal Editor-in-Chief and President Tim Grieve today announced the promotion of Scott Bland to editor-in-chief of The Hotline, Washington's premier daily tip sheet on campaigns and elections since 1987.

 

"Scott's expertise and deep understanding of our political system positions him perfectly for taking up the reins at Hotline," said Grieve. "As a Hotline veteran, he takes on the role with big ideas for building on the success Hotline has had over the last 27 years."

Previously, Bland covered the House, Senate, and governor's races as a senior analyst for The Hotline. He covered the 2012 elections as the editor of House Race Hotline, The Hotline's daily digest of House race news and analysis. Bland joined National Journal in 2010 as research assistant to Editorial Director Ronald Brownstein. Bland's work has also appeared in the Christian Science Monitor, TheAtlantic.com, the Scripps Howard Foundation Wire, and Stanford University's alumni magazine.

Grieve also announced that Andrea Drusch will be joining the Hotline team as a senior analyst. Drusch previously worked as a digital producer for Politico.

 

The Hotline was recently named a finalist in the min Digital Awards for Premium Content. Last fall, The Hotline rolled out new services and tools, including a customizable "Race Tracker" dashboard on the homepage, race-by-race summary pages, FEC campaign finance reports, polling results and national approval ratings, media mentions and social-media tracking, and full online access to the 2014 Almanac of American Politics.

Since 2008, The Hotline has hosted an annual trivia event featuring members of Congress, political operatives, reporters, and National Journal members. The sixth annual Hotline "Political Pursuit" event has been scheduled for July 9, 2014. More information will be available in the coming months.
