And now the moment we’ve all been waiting with bated breath for… Washington Life Magazine‘s 2009 The Young & the Guest List is here.
The annual collection of 250 of the “most influential Washingtonians under 40″ includes the scene’s well-knowns like NBC’s Luke Russert, Fox’s Bret Baier and CNN’s Jessica Yellin, as well as fresh new faces like MIX 107.3′s Tommy McFly.
Now we can’t divulge the full list here, but we can share these stats:
55% of the individuals on the 2009 Young & The Guest List are new additions to the list this year. (Note: the total number of listees has not increased since 2008)
39 individuals, or approximately 1 in 6, work on Capitol Hill, in the White House, the diplomatic corps, or public service
41 are CEO’s and 67 people, or approximately 1 in 4 have founded a company or non-profit
34% are married
Male 54%/Female 46%
35 people, or 12% are media professionals
The 2009 Y&GL party will be held Thursday, April 16th at an undisclosed location, and the guest list is pretty exclusively these 250 and one guest each.
To see if you’ve made the cut, check out the 35 media professionals after the jump.
