Dear FedScoop readers,
I am pleased to announce the addition of award-winning veteran journalist Shaun Waterman as FedScoop’s new editor-in-chief.
Waterman will lead FedScoop News into the next phase of its growth, managing and expanding the award-winning team of journalists that produce its website and daily newsletter.
Shaun is a world class editorial leader with a significant track record of leading, developing and expanding prestigious news organizations. He was the obvious choice as we looked for a seasoned and talented editor-In-chief to continue building upon the momentum of FedScoop News while leveraging new strategies to continue to grow our readership and team.
“FedScoop has built an exceptional brand that is both deeply respected and beloved by the government tech community. I’m excited to be a part of this expanding brand and by the new opportunities that leading FedScoop News offers,” said Waterman. “The chance to work with the talented team here was too good to pass up.”
Shaun comes to FedScoop from POLITICO, where he successfully launched a premium subscription real-time news service covering federal cybersecurity policy. He is an acknowledged expert on technology and national security, a regular presenter at leading conferences like Hacker Halted and the Aspen Security Forum, and author of a major report on the cybersecurity of critical infrastructure for the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Waterman, who has also worked for the BBC and United Press International, is a two-time winner of the Society of Professional Journalists’ “Dateline Washington” award, honoring the best reporting in the nation’s capital.
I am thrilled to welcome Shaun to our leadership team and I am excited to have him at the helm of FedScoop News.
