Dan Hirschhorn is a national political journalist based in New York City where he currently serves as the Continuous News Editor of Time.com.[1][2] He was previously a contributing political reporter for The Wall Street Journal.[3] Prior to this position he worked for The Daily before it was shut down,[4] and before that, for Politico in Washington D.C. At Politico he was the Deputy 2012 Editor, as well as a reporter.

He attended Brandeis University.[5] While at Brandeis, Dan Hirschhorn was editor in chief of the Brandeis independent student newspaper the Justice.[6] Following graduation, he worked as a journalist for The Bulletin in Philadelphia.[5] During his tenure at The Bulletin, Dan Hirschhorn won an award for enterprise reporting from the Pennsylvania Associated Press Managing Editors for a series of pieces concerning the Philadelphia Family Court.[7] He was the "Philly-based half" of PolitickerPA, a political news Web site operated by The New York Observer media company.[8]

After the PolitickerPA Web site was folded into the national Politicker Network, Hirschhorn founded pa2010.com, a political news Web site dedicated to the 2010 election cycle in Pennsylvania.[8] News items first appearing on pa2010.com have appeared in other media, including stories about Arlen Specter returning $100,000 in campaign contributions from Republicans after he changed parties,[9] that Jack Wagner would run for Pennsylvania governor,[10] and that Joe Hoeffel was "mulling" a run for Governor.[11]
