WASHINGTON, Sept. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Washington Examiner will launch a completely redesigned weekly magazine Tuesday, September 8, as Congress returns to work after its summer recess.
The bright new look, in a format that combines gravitas and clarity, recommits Washington Examiner to providing its growing readership with a handsome print product whenever Congress is in session. The new 9 by 11 inch magazine offers readers 56 pages of policy, news, analysis, commentary and in-depth features — a substantial increase over the 36 pages of the format it replaces.
The new Washington Examiner is divided into easy-to-navigate sections that focus on Washington political decision-makers and key players. Each week it will provide the nation’s capital with a forward-looking, in-depth, insightful and thoroughly readable briefing on what’s going on, what’s going down, and who’s making things happen.
The cover story of the first issue, “Women on the Move,” features interviews with 10 leading political women — Democrats and Republicans — including presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, about the changing role of women in national politics. There is also an examination of President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, a Q & A with Rep. Trey Gowdy, and the first Pocket Profile of a congressional staffer, which will be a regular weekly feature.
Editorial Director Hugo Gurdon said of the new Washington Examiner, “It is a beautiful publication, completely redesigned to marry modernity, gravitas, energy and seriousness. There is more of it and more in it, and I’m confident it will be well received by the capital’s voracious consumers of top-quality political news.”
Readers and advertisers can expect our customary high standards and a greater volume of serious journalism, both in the new magazine and online. Washington Examiner now offers twice as much content as it did a year ago. We’ve added policy expertise to our staff, beefed up our campaign team, and drawn on think tank scholars and other experts to provide the nation’s best analysis of the underlying issues and probable outcomes of Washington’s political battles.
The magazine redesign matches the recent redesign of the website, WashingtonExaminer.com, which has been made a user-friendly, highly visual, web-first platform. Both the website and magazine deploy Curator, a wonderfully clear new font designed last year in London. We’re the first news publication in the world to use it, but we won’t be the last.
The combination of daily digital reporting on our website, as well as the analysis of trending topics in our weekly print product, will position Washington Examiner as a high-value contributor to both Beltway insiders and politically-engaged readers across the country.
Senior VP of Advertising Mark Walters adds, “The issues we cover are complex, and our articles are written for a savvy, influential audience who are avid consumers of news about policy and politics. This new format with increased long-form journalism and deep analysis of the issues will resonate with readers and advertisers alike.”
Steve Sparks, President and Chief Operating Officer of MediaDC, parent company of Washington Examiner and The Weekly Standard, says, “We are proud to demonstrate our commitment to the print platform. A handsomely designed, well-written print publication offers an important physical presence in the offices and on the desks of Washington’s important decision makers.”
Providing intellectual capital for the nation’s capital, the Washington Examiner brings readers excellence in news coverage, reporting and thoughtful commentary. Washington Examiner is published by MediaDC, a subsidiary of Clarity Media.
