Na­tion­al Journ­al to Launch Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s Early Bird

WASH­ING­TON, Nov. 1, 2013 — The Pentagon an­nounced today that it will no longer pro­duce the Early Bird, an early morn­ing news­let­ter with a de­voted fol­low­ing among the de­fense com­munity. On Monday, Na­tion­al Journ­al will fill the void with Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s Early Bird, a new early morn­ing news­let­ter that will of­fer the same up-to-the-second cov­er­age of de­fense policy that made the Pentagon’s product a must-read.

Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s Early Bird will be de­livered at no cost to those who sign up at ht­tp://www.na­tion­al­journ­al.com/early-bird. To send tips for Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s Early Bird, email early­bird@na­tion­al­journ­al.com.

“People have re­lied on the Pentagon’s Early Bird for 50 years — only slightly longer than they’ve re­lied on Na­tion­al Journ­al for fiercely hon­est cov­er­age of Wash­ing­ton’s most im­port­ant policy is­sues,” said Na­tion­al Journ­al Pres­id­ent Bruce Got­tlieb. “We’re ex­cited to pick up the torch and of­fer this crit­ic­al ser­vice to our read­ers.”

At its launch, Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s Early Bird will be com­piled by Na­tion­al Journ­al Cor­res­pond­ents Sara Sorch­er and Dustin Volz, with ad­di­tion­al staff con­trib­ut­ing. It will join Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s oth­er must-read news­let­ters: the mem­bers-only Need to Know Memo, The Edge, and Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s new­est news­let­ters, En­ergy Edge and Health Care Edge, all avail­able at ht­tp://www.na­tion­al­journ­al.com/news­let­ters.

The launch builds on Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s grow­ing suc­cess this fall. Traffic to Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s newly de­signed web­site is up sig­ni­fic­antly, set­ting an all-time re­cord in Septem­ber, which Oc­to­ber then sur­passed by 5 per­cent.

Ad­di­tion­ally, Monday’s news­let­ter draws on Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s her­it­age: Na­tion­al Journ­al once pub­lished a news­let­ter called Na­tion­al Journ­al‘s Early­bird — a pre­curs­or to today’s Need to Know Memo.
