Washington Examiner Gossip Columnist Begins Transition

Nearly two months ago Washington Examiner “Yeas and Nays” gossip columnist Nikki Schwab was notified that as part of the publication’s restructuring, she would be one of many staffers let go. We hear she has until early June at the Examiner, but she’s already on the move.

At the start of May, Schwab began posting at The Daily Download, the web media site run by Lauren Ashburn and publicized by Howard Kurtz. Schwab has written four posts to-date on topics like new YouTube and LinkedIn features and a smartphone application that allows users to mimic Michelle Obama‘s fashion.

Schwab is with Daily Download on a freelance basis. She will also be freelancing for Washington Life. “Yes, just doing some freelance, trying to figure out what’s next for me,” she told FishbowlDC.
