“Since its debut, the 202 newsletter franchise has been the go-to news source for Beltway insiders, government leaders and the nation’s most politically influential,” said Rachel Van Dongen, editor of The Washington Post’s 202 newsletters. “The 202 newsletters build on The Post’s historic strength as a leader in politics and policy. With a focus on deeply engaging a core leadership audience and refining our products to best meet their daily news needs, we will continue to make these newsletters a Washington essential.”
The Post will introduce “The Early 202,” a newly adapted version of the “Power Up” newsletter, co-authored by Jackie Alemany and Theo Meyer, covering the nation’s power centers. The newsletter will pair Meyer’s deep sourcing in White House and K Street politics with Alemany’s authoritative insight into the halls of Congress to deliver the most comprehensive morning political briefing for the nation’s top leaders and influencers. “The Daily 202’s” Olivier Knox will draw on his deep expertise in Washington politics to provide expert analysis on the Biden administration, Congress and foreign policy, ensuring readers always have access to the day’s vital news.
