Many of you remember former Washington Examiner Yeas & Nays gossip columnist Tara Palmeri as the gorgeous brunette who took DC gossip to a whole new level. In 2010, Palmeri left DC for a job at the New York Post. We recently caught up with her to see what she’s been up to, what she misses most, and New York perceptions of DC media.
FishbowlDC: So what have you been doing since you left DC?
Tara Palmeri: I’ve been a reporter for the New York Post since 2010 when I left the Washington Examiner to work for famed “Page Six” editor Richard Johnson. Writing for the saucy gossip column was a dream job. I reported daily items for nearly two years on New York’s elite before switching to the news desk to be a general assignment reporter.
My first big assignment was covering the John Edwards trial from Greensboro, NC where I was based for nearly two months.
After the trial, I spent my first year chasing national stories all over the country in cities that I probably would have never visited like Bismarck, Reno, and Boise.
Most recently, I’ve been working on investigative and enterprise stories. So if you have a tip, send it my way!
