National Journal Ending Print Magazine, Reducing Newsroom Size
July 17, 2015

Atlantic Media has decided to cease publishing the weekly National Journal magazine, "likely at the year's end," company owner and chairman David Bradley announced in a memo to staff Thursday afternoon.

The company will still publish National Journal Daily (formerly Congress Daily) and theHotline daily tip sheet, and Bradley said that the company will be investing in both properties, as well as National Journal's website and a mobile app.

"Almost certainly, without the magazine, the size of our newsroom will be reduced," Bradley wrote in the memo, which was provided to reporters. "That said, I'm not drawn, here, to proposing layoffs,"

June 25, 2015

Content marketing has gotten more complex in some ways, and yet it is clarifying in others.

May 15, 2015

There are few more compelling digital journalism stories than the growth of Quartz, Atlantic Media's business site. Though it was born with the advantage of a highly desirable target audience - the global business elite - it has still managed to do so much right: sharable content, visual distinction, global reach, smart advertising strategy, mobile-first design...all while maintaining high quality. It's one of the few operations I recommend to the many people who ask me: Who's doing it right?

Quartz’s Kevin Delaney: Time to Kill the 800-Word Article
May 1, 2015

Quartz launched 2-and-a-half years ago as an upstart digital-first, global business news brand. The proposition: Quartz would outflank established rivals like The Economist, Wall Street Journal and Financial Times by being more nimble, more audience-focused - and free.

Kevin Delaney, the editor-in-chief, president and co-founder of Quartz, joined the Digiday Podcast to discuss how the 100-person, Atlantic Media-backed publication has rethought many newsroom practices as it built a site that now reaches 10 million people a month.

Newsonomics: Quartz Expands Into Africa, With a Twofer Strategy
March 23, 2015

Quartz, the often contrarian business news startup, ventures into Africa not just as an area of coverage but as a market. By early summer, Quartz will deploy a staff of five or six, located in Lagos, Nairobi, and Johannesburg to develop Quartz Africa. Editor Yinka Adegoke now finds himself in the midst of hiring. A native of Nigeria, Adegoke is an alum of Reuters and, more recently, Billboard who left the country 24 years ago. He'll be based in New York for now, but his long commutes to Africa will be frequent.
