From TV Consumer Reporting to LushClick.com

Looking fantastic in a leather jacket and skinny jeans, long-time consumer reporter Elizabeth Manresa toasted the launch of LushClick.com last night with a rooftop party downtown.

And it was a ladies night… Kathleen Matthews, Brianna Keilar, Nancy Cordes, Pamela Brown, Alison Starling, Missy Edwards, Laura Evans, Rebecca Cooper, Susan Roberts, Pamela Sorensen and Rachel Cothran were all in attendance, sipping on pomegranate martinis and rose champagne. It was somewhat of a reunion for Manresa and friends from local channel 7 WJLA.

Manresa’s taking 17 years of reporting experience, at least 12 of which in consumer reports, to the web with this online magazine for women. LushClick will review products like wrinkle erasers, spray on panty hoses (in last night’s party bag) and even bras. Pregnant with twins, she says she’ll need something to do at home and consumer reporting is “in my blood.”

You may also recognize Manresa from CNN- she’s also covered politics for the cabler.

Young and the Press List

Some on the “press list” and some on the “guest list,” journos came out in swarms to last night’s Young and the Guest List party hosted by Washington Life Magazine. The super-chic soiree was held at last year’s site for ARTOMATIC – a soon-to-be occupied office building on 1st St. NE. Guests were treated to pyramids of cupcakes, several open bars and a gifting suite in the rugged and lofty space.

Guest list-er Tommy McFly did his Mix 107.3 evening show live from the fete while champagne flowed freely and a band entertained the crowd. A few of the media folks spotted at last night’s function were NBC’s Luke Russert, CNN’s Amy Holmes, Politico’s Patrick Gavin, TWT’s Stephanie Green, Carol Ross Joynt, Pamela Sorenson, Washingtonian’s Garrett Graff, NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, Rachel Cothran, Betsy Fischer, Will Thomas, Pamela Brown and representing for WaPo were Dan Zak & Amy Argetsinger.

It’s Here. Washington Life‘s 2009 The Young & The Guest List

And now the moment we’ve all been waiting with bated breath for… Washington Life Magazine‘s 2009 The Young & the Guest List is here.

The annual collection of 250 of the “most influential Washingtonians under 40″ includes the scene’s well-knowns like NBC’s Luke Russert, Fox’s Bret Baier and CNN’s Jessica Yellin, as well as fresh new faces like MIX 107.3′s Tommy McFly.

Now we can’t divulge the full list here, but we can share these stats:

55% of the individuals on the 2009 Young & The Guest List are new additions to the list this year. (Note: the total number of listees has not increased since 2008)

39 individuals, or approximately 1 in 6, work on Capitol Hill, in the White House, the diplomatic corps, or public service

41 are CEO’s and 67 people, or approximately 1 in 4 have founded a company or non-profit

34% are married

Male 54%/Female 46%

35 people, or 12% are media professionals

The 2009 Y&GL party will be held Thursday, April 16th at an undisclosed location, and the guest list is pretty exclusively these 250 and one guest each.

To see if you’ve made the cut, check out the 35 media professionals after the jump.

Beverly Kirk: The FishbowlDC Interview

kirk_beverly.jpgSay hello to WJLA’s Beverly Kirk.

What word do you routinely misspell? Embarrass. I always leave out an “r”.

What’s the name of your cell phone ring? The theme from “I Dream of Jeannie”. I know. It’s really lame, but I liked the show when I was a kid, especially that cute Major Nelson.

What time did you get up this morning? 8:45am. I get to sleep in since I work evenings.

When did you last cry and why? August 11th at the funeral for former Belo reporter Stacy Hutchins, a dear friend who died of breast cancer.

How many emails do you receive a day, roughly? Real ones, probably 40 to 50. The other 40 to 50 are spam emails with bad stock tips and offers for products I don’t need.

What’s your favorite letter? The one I recently received telling me I’ve been accepted for a program at the Aspen Institute.

What single person played the biggest role / had the biggest influence on your journalism career? It’s hard to pick just one person because so many people have helped me. Al Tompkins of the Poynter Institute has been a huge influence. He mentored me when I started out in television. Others who’ve influenced me include veteran Kentucky political journalists Al Cross and Al Smith, columnist Merlene Davis and retired Western Kentucky University Sports Information Director Paul Just, who gave me my first writing job.
