CQ Roll Call Launches the New CQ.com

Washington, D.C. (April 28, 2014) – CQ Roll Call, an Economist Group business, announced today the launch of the newly updated CQ.com with up-to-the-minute news and information straight from our experts on Capitol Hill. The new platform makes it easier for clients to get to CQ’s premium content, through new features like CQ Now and an enhanced “Today at a Glance,” as CQ continues to be the place to turn for in-depth reporting, policy analysis and legislative tracking.

“This refreshed look is built for the way our customers live and work now,” said David Ellis, Vice President of News, CQ Roll Call. “Whether you’re in the office or checking a device on the fly, CQ will be there to provide the news, analysis and insight you need throughout the day.”

The new CQ Now platform is a real-time chronicle of Capitol Hill’s most important developments. Our premier intelligence-gathering team continuously updates CQ Now with the latest news and insider’s tips directly from the halls of Congress.

CQ.com also includes an enhanced “Today at a Glance” feature, now updating throughout the day with schedule changes and the latest actions. Users will also find links to key documents and transcripts, as well as reporting from the CQ team.

In addition, CQ debuted five new blogs featuring expert analysis on key topics that matter to our subscribers: Agriculture & Food, Banking & Finance, Defense, Energy & Environment, and Transportation. These blogs will be an easy and intuitive portal for users to find breaking news, in-depth policy analysis and commentary on the issues they care about.

“Since 1945, members of Congress — and those who are affected by the laws they craft —have relied on CQ to keep on top of what’s happening on Capitol Hill,” said Ellis. “This bold new look is the first of many exciting changes we plan to help you stay ahead.”
