Top Editor at The Atlantic Will Moderate “Washington Week”

From a New York Times story by Benjamin Mullin headlined “Top Editor at The Atlantic Will Moderate ‘Washington Week’:

“PBS NewsHour” announced that Jeffrey Goldberg, the editor in chief of The Atlantic, would be the next moderator of “Washington Week,” the Friday evening public affairs show that is a staple among policymakers in the nation’s capital.

The Atlantic will co-produce the show, which will be renamed “Washington Week With The Atlantic.” The magazine will cover some of the costs and help to sell sponsorships.

Mr. Goldberg, who has been at The Atlantic for more than a decade — its former owner, David Bradley, recruited him in 2007 with a team of ponies — said he believed there were still enough viewers who cared about in-depth analysis of consequential issues to make the show a success.
