EXCLUSIVE: Garrett Graff Joins POLITICO Magazine

A source tells us that Garrett Graff, who left Washingtonian in April where he served as editor-in-chief for five years, most recently joined POLITICO Magazine.

Graff told the Washington City Paper at the time of his departure that he didn’t yet have concrete plans on what’s next, but that he is, “looking forward to a new challenge, wherever that may lie,” and that he will probably spend a good part of his time finishing up his third book, a history of the Cold War, for Simon and Schuster.

Washingtonian in June named Michael Schaffer Graff’s replacement as editor.

Graff edited FishbowlDC from January 2005 to May 2006, when Patrick Gavin took over.

UPDATE  (3:52pm): An update from POLITICO confirms that Graff has joined the magazine, official today, as a senior staff writer.

Washingtonian Names Michael Schaffer New Editor

06062014-schafferWashingtonian today announced the hire of Michael Schaffer as its 4th editor in the magazine’s 49-year history. Schaffer was most recently with The New Republic where he served as editorial director and prior to that was editor of the Washington City Paper. 

Schaffer replaces former FishbowlDC-er Garrett Graff, who served as editor of Washingtonian for the past five years. In April, a memo from publisher Cathy Merrill Williams announced that she and Graff agreed he would leave this month.

Schaffer is set to start in July. Check out the full memo, after the jump. Read more

Ex-Fishbowler Garrett Graff Leaves Washingtonian

Michael Calderone broke the news today that Washingtonian Editor-in-Chief -and more significantly, former FishbowlDC Editor -Garrett Graff is leaving that magazine after 5 years in the top editorial spot.

Graff also told City Paper that he doesn’t yet have concrete plans on what’s next, but that he is “looking forward to a new challenge, wherever that may lie.” He says that he will probably spend a good part of his time finished up his third book -a history of the Cold War -for Simon and Schuster.

Graff edited this blog from January 2005 to May 2006, when Patrick Gavin took over. His life after Fishbowl includes a long-running stint at Georgetown University where he teaches classes on digital media, several published books, and the gig at Washingtonian starting in 2009.

Senior Editors Sherri Dalphonse and Kristin Hinman will serve as co-editors for the mag for now while Publisher Cathy Merrill Williams searches for a new editor.

Washingtonian MOM celebrated it’s second issue Wednesday night in which NBC4′s Eun Yang graces the cover. FishbowlDC put on our parenting boots and jumped right into the celebration (we actually don’t have parenting boots, so we wore our Palladium boots instead). Here’s how it went down.

4:45pm - Begin to figure out when is considered “fashionably late” for a 6:30 event thrown by a (Washingtonian) fashion editor (Kate Bennett). Settle on 6:45.

6:34 - Walk into Room & Board, host and venue of the event, 9 minutes ahead of schedule.

6:35 - Bee line for the champers.

6:36 - Realization that I’m flying solo at a mom magazine event.

6:44 - Good (punctual!) crowd. 40 people approximately, including 4 other men, all looking around, likely pondering their attendance.

7:00 - Arrival of cover girl Yang.

7:10 - Anxiety setting in over the thought of having children. This leads to a refill of champers and quick stop by the food table (nice cheese and charcuterie spread by Screwtop).

Mark Levin Calls Ana Marie Cox ‘Dumb’ After She Calls his Book ‘Boring’ and Insane

Breitbart.com‘s Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro ran a bread and butter post today in which conservative radio personality Mark Levin calls Guardian‘s lefty writer Ana Marie Cox “as dumb as it gets.” He throws in an “anal sex aficionado” descriptor just for fun.

The reason? Read more

This Day in FishbowlDC History

Today we unveil a new feature here in the Fishbowl. It’s a look back on where we’ve been and were specifically on this day in years past. We’re going to start out today’s debut item with no set vision on how often this will run. For now we’ll say “steady and occasional” and see where we go from there. The site was founded in 2005, so we’ll begin there: This day in 2005.

At the time, Garrett Graff, now Editor-in-Chief of Washingtonian, was manning the site. Let’s see which item jumped out at us.

Morning Chatter

Morning Wondering: Something to watch over your breakfast of coffee and weed. Politico‘s Dylan Byers may want to look at this – or not.

WaPo sale fallout

“What’s most interesting about Don Graham is how personally interested he is in tech. Unusual both for a newspaperman and a 68-year-old” — Slate‘s Farhad Manjoo.

“Just had a weird experience being interviewed by a Post reporter about the sale; neither of us really seem to know What It All Means.” — WCP Editor Mike Madden waxing philosophical coupled with a little Marty Rudolph capitalizing technique.

“I know this is against the principles of journalism, but can everyone just take a deep breath and relax. Most of us don’t know squat yet.” — WaPo‘s Tim Carman.

“Not sure how head of Amazon turns around an aging newspaper, but Bezos knows a bit about the web. Maybe he just subsidizes good journalism” — Fox News’ Howard Kurtz (still so strange to write that).

“The sale of the Washington Post is probably a good reminder that nobody/nothing is untouchable.” — WTOP’s Neal Augenstein.

“In his letter to the Washington Post, Bezos said that our coverage of restaurant openings is important! I switched beats at the right time.” — WaPo‘s Maura Judkis.

“Based on your previous purchases, Jeff Bezos, you might also like: The Los Angeles Times, The Orlando Sentinel, Newsweek.” — Defense One‘s Marc Ambinder.

Dramatically untrue

“Antigua. Where love goes to die.” — Washingtonian Editor Garrett Graff, who is apparently a big watcher of “The Bachelorette.” But actually Des ends up with Chris. So technically Graff is a bit off.
