Axios will launch a new centralized news hub focused on the newsroom’s national and local coverage. An excerpt from the announcement reads:
“The new team of reporters and editors will synthesize reporting from Axios’ national news team and Axios Local cities to identify key stories and trends emerging across the country.
“Hub reporters will also produce data-driven coverage, special weekend reports and city guides for Axios Local newsletters, breaking down how national trends impact readers’ communities, and the latest updates in key areas like entertainment, real estate and sports.”
Axios has hired Holly Moore as managing editor to oversee the hub. She will join from USA Today, where she served as senior director of audience, planning and operations. She also coordinated journalism coverage between USA Today and Gannett newspapers across the country.
