Politico Expands Live Journalism And Events

Politico today promoted Alexis Williams to vice president of Politico’s recently rebranded live journalism division, Politico Live. Politico Live features journalists, newsmakers, policymakers and thought-leaders and includes multi-platform series including Women Rule, Outside In and What Works.

“Alexis has built the Politico events infrastructure from the ground-up, bringing her business expertise and passion for curating news making experiences to Politico; she has successfully executed hundreds of headline-grabbing events that drive the conversation with one of the world’s most influential audiences,” said Poppy MacDonald, president of Politico. “Her leadership has given Politico a distinct reputation for hosting live discussions that connect thought leaders with diverse perspectives with the goal of informing policy conversations and driving progress.”

“Live consequential journalism is an essential part of Politico’s mission,” said Williams. “As Politico continues to further develop its expertise — be it in states, policy areas, in Washington and across the EU, convening the influential audience that relies on our journalism is more important now than ever. There couldn’t be a better time to have thought-provoking conversations on issues driving global decision making. I’m thrilled to lead Politico Live, as we continue to take Politico to the next level.”
