Washington Life Wants to be the E! of D.C.

114810877_300.jpgWashington Life‘s Executive Editor Michael Clements, one of the two hosts of this weekend’s debut WL TV show, calls the new program “the last piece of real estate” in this town. Clements, who co-hosts with Managing Editor Karen Tanabe, insists Washington Life has access others don’t.

“What’s important is the access we have…like the private events at people’s homes that Politico Click and other bloggers are not going to get into – or maybe it’s just too high end for them,” he said.

That said, Clements says the show is a “pilot” the publication hopes to make weekly come spring. “We’re having fun with it. Nothing too serious. Well, I mean, for example, we run some pictures of the Salahis, so we did a quick 30 seconds. We just ran the photos. We didn’t ask if it’s a security breach, did they crash or didn’t they crash. Just here are the photos, enjoy type of thing.”

Hosts will air segments with socialite Pamela Sorenson on best dressed and Paul Wharton on fashion events. There won’t, however, be in-studio sit-down interviews.

Clements thinks that can be a big bore. “I’m not really a fan of the sit-down interview,” he said. “I think it slows it down. Our model is really E!, the Ryan Seacrest kind of show.”

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.
