Feb 10,2016

New media organization will oversee fourteen RealClear properties’ direction and strategy as a single unit and will be led by Erin Waters.
Washington, D.C. – RealClearPolitics (RCP) is pleased to announce the formation of RealClear Media Group (RCMG).

RCMG will oversee strategy and operations for fourteen sites operating under the RealClear brand, including RealClearPolitics, RealClearDefense, RealClearScience, and the newly launched RealClearHealth.

Erin Waters has been named inaugural president of the newly formed organization. Waters came to RealClearPolitics after serving as publisher of Governing, where she led the national publication covering the states and localities to three straight years of double-digit revenue growth, and before that held stints at National Journal and Congressional Quarterly. Since 2014 she has served as RealClear’s chief revenue officer and has overseen impressive growth in revenue across all of RealClear’s properties.

“Erin has been a tremendous leader for our organization since coming on board in 2014, and in her new position as president of RealClear Media Group we look forward to continued growth and success in the future,” co-founder & CEO John McIntyre said of Waters.

Since its founding in 2000, RealClearPolitics has become the most trusted non-partisan platform for political news. Washington insiders and interested outside-the-Beltway citizens alike rely on RCP as the authoritative source for reporting, commentary, and analysis on campaigns and elections, and they return for its presentation of all sides of pressing public policy issues coming to the fore in 2016.
