Take note. Daniel Lippman just might be your boss in ten years. An avid FishbowlDC reader/tipster, Lippman probably knows more about the news industry than most media execs and veteran journos.

We’ve mentioned him on the blog a few times (a hat tip from time to time and a recent birthday shout), but we haven’t told you that the GW student and newshound sends us materials, links and edits to our posts throughout the day…just for kicks. Strange, right? Not really.

After coming across this old CNN package about a then 15 year old Daniel, we realize that this kid isn’t strange at all. He was just born for news media. Get to know him now. He might be signing your checks soon.
