Just the News, a new media outlet, is being launched to “address the growing need for fact-based, impartial news and compelling digital content. JusttheNews.com will deliver exclusive news, podcasts, books, polling and video content showcasing some of the most respected and trusted journalists and editors in news media today,” states a release.
In a memo, John Solomon, creator of the new news site, wrote, “After two-plus amazing years at Hill.TV I am moving on next month to build my own startup media company.”
He did not reveal any details about his plans for an online media site, reports Washington Examiner, which added that, in his memo, Solomon “praised the Hill, his TV group, and Capitol Hill Publishing Chairman James A. Finkelstein. “With Jimmy’s vision and your continued great work, I am confident Hill.TV is destined for even greater success in the future,” Solomon wrote.
“Long an investigative reporter for the Associated Press, the 52-year-old reporter over the past decade has worked to push the Washington Times into profitability, started Circa, was president of Packard Media Group, and also headed the Center for Public Integrity, which investigates politicians and funding.
“Solomon was an investigative reporter at The Washington Post before he was named executive editor of the Washington Times in 2008.
“In July 2017, he was named executive vice president of the Hill.
“He has become well-known on TV, frequently appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox show to discuss the Russia-Trump investigation and related stories.”
