Politicker Changes

CQ’s Eric Pfeiffer is joining Politicker.com as an Deputy Managing Editor. Pfeiffer will be taking over some of the day-to-day editorial management duties from Michael Grass, who is taking on expanded duties within the company, including managing all of Politicker’s editorial communications, public relations and outreach.

Pfeiffer will be relocating to New York City.

Dead: ReadExpress. Born: Express Night Out

The Express newspaper’s attempt to be like DCist city blog — FreeRide — has been suffering a slow demise following head blogger Michael Grassdeparture to Politicker.

So it is, then, that they’ve canned the site for a new one: ExpressNightOut, a far less bloggy guide to the city.

Question: Does the WaPo seem to have a bit of overkill on the “what’s going on in the city” department? There’s the Going Out Gurus. ExpressNightOut. The Weekend Section. Style on the Go. We don’t want to say that Katharine Weymouth may consider that very fact in her “assessment” of WaPo resources, but, well, you know…

I mean, come on: Our city isn’t nearly that exciting…

Grass To Politicker.com

Free Ride/ExpressMichael Grass is leaving the city whose streets and buildings he’s virtually memorized. He’s heading to NYC where he’ll become Politicker.com’s deputy managing editor. Grass’ previous jobs have included Roll Call and DCist.

The move is a big loss for the Express’ blog, which will sorely miss Grass’ tireless work ethic, local knowledge and commitment.

How Bloggy Is D.C.?

First, Shaw was called the United States’ “bloggiest neighborhood.” But now we find out that D.C. is America’s fourth bloggiest city.

What’s the real deal? And what to make of the rankings? Well, who else but Express’ Michael Grass can sort out the local blogosphere for you

Rising Star Finalists

mblogo.jpgAfter the jump, you’ll find the finalists for FishbowlDC’s Rising Star competition. Congrats to everyone for being nominated and making it into the 2nd round in our first “Rising Star” competition. The winners will accompany mediabistro.com and FishbowlDC to the National Press Foundation Dinner, with a seat next to a high-profile guest (and if you’re a high profile guest who wants to go, let us know).

Plus: We’ll be giving away seats to lucky winners we’ll pick at random. Click here to enter the raffle (send your name, affiliation and contact info).

Now, before you write in to complain about so-and-so not getting included, etc., etc., let’s explain a few things.

1.) If you didn’t get nominated, you didn’t get considered. The pool of contenders was chosen by you.
2.) Some (actually, many) people were not included because, in our opinion, they were already “risen”, not “rising” (For instance: Ed Henry was nominated. Funnily enough, so was Helen Thomas). So, for some of you, it’s a compliment.
3.) We did our best to limit the number of finalists from each publication, from certain beats, and from each medium (print, radio, broadcast, etc.).
4.) Most importantly, we’re well aware that the list is imperfect. We did our best. Our apologies in advance if you felt snubbed. Dorian, Inky and Patrick discussed the finalists but the finalists were mostly determined by consulting with employees at various news organizations for their insight, thoughts and advice.

Okay, so this is how it’s going work: After the jump is the list of finalists. If you’re already attending the National Press Foundation Annual Awards Dinner on February 22, let us know. Unfortunately, we’ll have to remove your name from consideration, since that means you won’t be able to sit with us (*tear*). Also, if you simply don’t want to be considered, please also let us know. Then, with the list tweaked as/if needed, we will open up voting Thursday morning and it will go through Monday.

Click below for the finalists…
