National Law Journal editor Frerking leaving for Texas
Beth Frerking, editor-in-chief of the The National Law Journal in Washington, has been named editor-in-chief of the Rivard Report in Texas.
A Rivard Report story states, “Frerking is a graduate of University of Texas at Austin’s School of Journalism, and she served as editor of The Daily Texan. She traces her Texas roots to generations who settled in Seguin in the late 1800s. One great-grandfather served as the city’s newspaper publisher and editor.
“At The National Law Journal, a publication of ALM Media, she has overseen coverage of the U.S. Supreme Court, the Justice Department, federal regulation, and the business of law in Washington, D.C. In April, she shepherded conversion of the publication’s weekly print newspaper to a monthly glossy magazine, recently earning recognition as a magazine innovator in the Folio: 100 Awards.
“Before joining The National Law Journal as its top editor in 2013, she served as one of the first-generation editors at Politico in Washington, D.C., which began publication in early 2007. Frerking joined Politico one week before its launch, and was an assistant managing editor when she left to join The National Law Journal.”
