BWMI: Ben Terris Leaves NJ for WaPo

We here at FishbowlDC have been subsisting off of a steady diet of bourbon and eggnog ever since Thanksgiving, which is probably how we missed this super big news: Ben Terris is leaving the National Journal for WaPo‘s Style section!

The announcement was made December 16th (yikes!) via  memo to WaPo staff from Frances Sellers, Style Editor, and Eva Rodriquez, Style Deputy Features Editor. Ben’s focus will be on national politics and he begins work in January.

Join us in sending Ben a big, belated FishbowlDC congrats!

Helena Andrews Joins Heil at WaPo’s R.S.

The Reliable Source has another new voice! Helena Andrews will join Emily Heil at R.S. starting in January, according to a statement from WaPo Style editor Frances Sellers. Helena has been at The Root most recently, where she writes a weekly pop culture column, and she has been a contributing editor of the online women’s magazine xoJane. She also chronicled her roaring late twenties in Washington, with a collection of essays “Bitch is the New Black,” published by HarperCollins in 2010.

Separately, it was announced that current R.S. columnist Roxanne Roberts will return to writing full-length feature stories for the Style section.

Downie Looking to “Build Connections Between The Daily and Feature Sections”

An internal staff notice from WaPo’s Len Downie and Phil Bennett, obtained by FishbowlDC:

    As part of our effort to build connections between the daily and feature sections and consolidate coverage, Frances Sellers, editor of the Health weekly, will be joining the National staff on Sept. 1.

    Frances will attend the daily National editors meetings and will work more closely with National’s health and science team and with the top editors on the National staff. The fourth floor design team and copy desk will continue to handle the Health weekly and thus Frances will remain in her fourth floor office. Starting in September, Metro and National will each contribute two cover stories a month for the Health weekly.

    This set up may evolve as we continue to explore the best structure and the right.resources for health coverage.
