RICHARD JUST JOINS AT­LANTIC ME­DIA AS ED­IT­OR OF NA­TION­AL JOURN­AL MAGAZINE

Just to Lead Magazine Re­design and Take Brand to Next Level

Wash­ing­ton, D.C. — Na­tion­al Journ­al Ed­it­or-in-Chief Tim Grieve an­nounced today that Richard Just will be the new ed­it­or of Na­tion­al Journ­al magazine. Just joins Na­tion­al Journ­al on March 10 and will be based at its Wash­ing­ton headquar­ters.

Just was most re­cently with New­s­week, where he was Wash­ing­ton ed­it­or and then ed­it­or be­fore the magazine began the trans­ition to its new own­ers last fall. Be­fore his time with New­s­week, he served as ed­it­or of The New Re­pub­lic from late 2010 un­til mid-2012, a peri­od dur­ing which he led the magazine to its first Na­tion­al Magazine Award nom­in­a­tion for gen­er­al ex­cel­lence in two dec­ades.

“Richard is one of the best magazine ed­it­ors in the busi­ness, and he comes to Na­tion­al Journ­al brim­ming with ideas for pro­du­cing the most vi­brant, most com­pel­ling, and most es­sen­tial policy and polit­ics magazine any­where,” Grieve said. “Bring­ing Richard on is part of an on­go­ing in­vest­ment in our magazine, our mem­bers, and the fu­ture of long-form journ­al­ism in Wash­ing­ton — and it’s just what we need to build on the tre­mend­ous suc­cess we’re already hav­ing.”

Hav­ing re­designed and re­launched its web­site in Oc­to­ber, Na­tion­al Journ­al has since en­joyed sig­ni­fic­ant audi­ence growth, set­ting traffic re­cords throughout the fall. Janu­ary’s on­line read­er­ship was up 45 per­cent over last Janu­ary’s.

Just will lead the magazine through a re­design this spring with Deputy Magazine Ed­it­or An­die Coller. He will also over­see the hir­ing of ad­di­tion­al staff ed­it­ors and re­port­ers over the next sev­er­al months.

“It’s an ex­cit­ing time to join Na­tion­al Journ­al giv­en the op­por­tun­ity and re­sources on hand to be bold and cre­at­ive while main­tain­ing the found­a­tion on which this ven­er­able brand was built nearly 50 years ago,” Just said. “As we reen­gin­eer the magazine, our fo­cus will be on mak­ing it a source for long-form writ­ing about polit­ics that is en­light­en­ing, chal­len­ging, in­form­at­ive, and (as all great magazine journ­al­ism should be) truly fun to read.”
