Several Stars Up for Grabs After CQ-Roll Call Cuts

Help Wanted? Now’s your chance! FishbowlDC has confirmed that SpyTalk’s Jeff Stein (one of my favorite reads), Chris Lehmann and award-winning reporter Jonathan Allen are all on the market after today’s layoffs at CQ-Roll Call.

Chris Lehmann @lehmannchris tweets:

I am now officially redundant, the Brits who canned me would say. Any jobleads, free drinks, career advice in the DC region warmly welcome

One thing being laid off has taught me: If anyone hugs me in this condition, I WILL cry. Fair notice.

From Jeff Stein:

“I have loved every minute of doing SpyTalk, which has gained a fervently loyal and growing readership, and I hope I can continue to do it somewhere else without missing a day. I have a lot of good stories in the pipeline.”
