Politico to acquire E&E News
Arlington news organization to buy energy, environment news business
Arlington-based political and policy-focused news organization Politico announced last week it will acquire energy and environment news organization E&E News.
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, but the purchase will add energy and environmental coverage, according to a company statement. The E&E Brand will remain intact.
“We are doubling down on our policy coverage by investing in journalism and growing our product offerings in the energy and environmental policy space, which touches all aspects of the economy and government,” Politico Publisher and Executive Chairman Robert Allbritton said in a statement.
E&E currently has more than 65 reporters and editors across the United States. Founded in 2007, Politico employs nearly 600 people in North America — with more of half being editorial staff.
“I believe the combination of E&E News’ trusted, independent and comprehensive journalism and Politico’s ambitious reporting, influential audience and innovation will provide unparalleled and unique coverage of energy and environmental issues that our subscribers and the world need right now,” E&E News co-founder and Publisher Michael Witt said in a statement.
