DorobekInsider: 1105 GovInfo promotes Rapp – and 1105 GovInfo promotes Rapp – and hires Corrin as DOD reporter
The 1105 Government Information Group has hired a new reporter to cover the Defense Department and has promoted David Rapp, who was hired originally as the 1105 GovInfo editorial director. Rapp has been promoted to 1105 Government Information Group vice president of content.
Insiders tell me that the title matches the role that Rapp is playing, which has a much wider scope as content increasingly isn’t just a print product anymore. Rapp is reorganizing the newsroom around content first — and secondarly on where that content goes, whether it be print or Web or even events. The new title puts Rapp on par with 1105’s VP of events and the still being sought VP of sales (group publisher).
And welcome to 1105 GovInfo’s new DOD reporter, Amber Corrin. Corrin most recently was at editor of the newsletter group of Hart Energy Publishing, according to her LinkedIn profile… before that, she was at AFCEA’s SIGNAL magazine. She started at 1105 on Monday.
I found this bio from when she was Signal:
Amber Corrin is SIGNAL’s assistant editor. Corrin is responsible for the production of SIGNAL Connections and writes the International Events and Chapter items. For SIGNAL Magazine, she compiles and edits the Chapter News, Progressions and International Calendar columns. She also covers AFCEA events.
Corrin has covered international affairs, foreign policy and consumer health for United Press International; she previously freelanced for the Charleston (West Virginia) Daily Mail, including ground reporting of the first post-Hurricane Katrina Mardi Gras and 9th Ward clean-up efforts in New Orleans. A graduate of West Virginia University’s Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism, she helmed one of the nation’s premier college newspapers and has won awards for her editorial writing and for young veteran coverage.
[EDITOR’s CAVIAT: I write a column for Signal magazine, and, of course, I used to work for 1105 GovInfo. Take all of that for what it’s worth.]
Congratulations to both.
I hear there were other changes within the organization, but I haven’t been able to nail those down.
