Jason Zengerle, former senior editor of The New Republic, has apparently found a new home with GQ as the magazine’s political correspondent. The announcement came in a press release earlier today by GQ editor-in-chief Jim Nelson.
“We’re thrilled Jason’s returning to GQ in time to set the tone for 2016 campaign coverage,” says Nelson. “He has some of the best reported pieces in the longform game and his voice will no doubt help shape the political conversation both in the magazine and regularly on GQ.com.”
He has contributed to GQ in the past, having written pieces for the publication on Senator Rand Paul in 2010 and a profile of Senator Ted Cruz in 2013. Zengerle also announced the news via Twitter: “I’m so happy to say that I’m joining @GQMagazine as its political correspondent and @NYMag as a contributing editor.”
Previously, Zengerle was a senior staff writer at Politico magazine and a contributor to New York Magazine, while some of his work has appeared in The Atlantic, The New York Times Magazine.
