Politico's new Manhattan distribution plan includes delivery to about 900 people: "financial executives, media personnel, both broadcast and print, as well as select personnel in Madison Avenue advertising agencies," according to Chief Operating Officer Kim Kingsley. Another 800 will be dropped at those locations for other staff and visitors. Among the news outlets that will receive copies:
- ABC News
- CBS News
- CBS Radio Network
- NBC News
- Fox News Channel
- Fox News Radio
- Thomson Reuters
- The New York Times
- The Associated Press
- The Daily News
And 2,400 copies will be available at 24 boxes around Manhattan, near media headquarters, financial institutions and subway stations.
Executive Editor Jim VandeHei tells Capital New York's Joe Pompeo that there are advertising and reader reasons for distributing the paper in New York:
"We will be increasing our coverage of the intersection of Washington and the financial sector in the months ahead, building on our Morning Money franchise," he wrote in an email to Capital. "...This move is designed to make sure the most influential readers in New York, who intersect and interact constantly with Washington officials, get the same paper in a same timely way."
