Fishbowl Five: Former DNC-er, Now Comms Director at Vogue Hildy Kuryk

Hildy KurykJust following the 2013 inauguration of President Barack ObamaHildy Kuryk, who served as the finance director of the Democratic National Committee, left Washington for New York City. Shortly after, Kuryk, who in 2011 was named one of POLITICO’s top 50 fundraisers to watch, joined Anna Wintour’s Vogue fashion empire as communications director, having first met the fashion icon in the spring of 2008 when Wintour was supporting then-Senator Obama’s campaign for president.

Nearly 18 months after leaving her life in Washington politics, we spoke with Kuryk about her new career in the fashion industry often foreign to life inside the Beltway, the intersection of politics and fashion, and what she’s learned most about Washington politics since her departure.

FishbowlDC: What have you been up to since leaving the DNC?

Hildy Kurky: “I left the DNC right after the inauguration in January 2013 and my husband, our son and I moved back to NYC. We are both from New York so it has been great being back in the city and enjoying all our old haunts and finding new ones in Brooklyn where we just moved!”

“In April of last year I started working as the Communications Director at Vogue magazine. I can’t believe it has been well over a year already – time has really flown by.”


FBDC: Where do you see the intersection of politics and fashion?

HK: “In my opinion one of the best things to come out of the 2008 Obama campaign was the idea that individual Americans could take ownership over their politics. Everyone could play a role in that campaign, no matter who you were or where you came from. In a similar vein, with the rise of social media, you have continued to see a movement in fashion toward individual style, the mix of high and low, the street style, the Instagram fashion shoots (that Vogue was the first to do!). Most of all there is a prevailing sense that you don’t have to buy designer fashion to be fashionable anymore – it is about how you present yourself and what your personal message is.”

“Of course I would also be remiss if I didn’t commend our First Lady, Mrs. Obama, on her dedication to young American designers and the spotlight she shines on our industry.”

WHCD Party Invites: The New Yorker with David Remnick

Short, simple, and to the point, The New Yorker’s invite for their Friday night cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with editor David Remnick downloads quicker than any other we’ve yet seen.

The New Yorker Party: Off Limits to Press

vip-card.jpg

An invitation to the The New Yorker party during upcoming Prom weekend is much coveted because a)it’s The New Yorker and b)no press is being allowed in.

“We’re actually not letting any reporters in to cover it”, a New Yorker spokesperson has told FishbowlDC.

The pre-WHCD party is being held on the rooftop of the W Hotel in downtown Washington on the evening before the dinner. Editor David Remnick is hosting the party.

Party crashing anyone?

Morning Reading List 03.24.09

Good Morning FishbowlDC!

Got a blind item, interesting link, funny note, comment, birthday, anniversary or anything of the sort for Morning Reading List? Drop us a line.

Its day 64 covering the Obama administration and week eight for us. Happy Birthday to Mary Ann “The Sleuth” Akers (Playbook). What we know and what we’re reading this Tuesday morning…

NEWSPAPERS | TV | RADIO | ONLINE | MAGAZINES | NEWS NOTES | JOBS

NEWPAPERS

The Ann Arbor News will close in July after publishing as the city’s daily newspaper since 1835, publisher Laurel Champion announced. Heavy losses in revenue drove the decision. Champion said the current “business model is not sustainable.”

Bill Kristol on who many have called his “replacement,” Ross Douthat: “He’ll do a great job.

NYT on anonymous sources.

TV

President Obama hits the airwaves with his economic message. Chicago Tribune’s Phil Rosenthal says Jay Leno may just be the start- and he has some interesting ideas for the President. “He could empathize with the boys of ‘Two and a Half Men’ if their mother has to move in. He could explain to folks on ’90210′ why they should have bought homes in less-glitzy ZIP codes they could actually afford. He could visit ‘Flip This House’ and tell them to just knock it off already.”

Fox’s Glenn Beck responded to MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann on his show last night, invoking Tim Russert. “If you miss him, you should become him… When journalists decide that the only thing that sends a chill down their leg is integrity, well then maybe America will be able to trust them again.”

RADIO

NPR audiences reached a record last year, driven by widespread interest in the presidential election, and the general decline of radio news elsewhere. Audiences for its daily news programs hit 20.9 million a week, a 9 percent increase.

ONLINE

FishbowlNY: Perhaps those newspaper folks currently directing their ire at Arianna Huffington may want to reconsider their target in the hopes that she will divulge her company’s “mostly secret” Google search-engine optimization tactics. AdAge is reporting that major media companies are pressuring Google to elevate their “expensive online content” to the top sphere of Google’s search results.

From DCist, When Snarky Local News Blogging Goes Wrong- is NBC4′s website over the top?

MAGAZINES

Yesterday, WaPo book critic Ron Charles posted on Twitter that The New Yorker was considering reducing its frequency. You could practically hear the sound of 600 media reporters picking up their phones in response, but soon New Yorker editor David Remnick denied the rumor.

NEWS NOTES

Secretary Hillary Clinton’s State Department has “embarked on a digital diplomacy drive aimed at spreading the word about American foreign policy and restoring Washington’s image.” Read more here.

In a report called “Getting Away With Murder 2009,” the Committee to Protect Journalists has found that violence against the press often goes unpunished. “Our findings indicate that the failure to solve journalist murders perpetuates further violence against the press,” said CPJ’s Joel Simon.
