WaPo Weekend’s Ellen McCarthy to Style Section

WaPo memo below:

I’m pleased to announce that Ellen McCarthy will be joining Style to help launch our coverage of weddings under the supervision of Debra Leithauser.
Ellen has been a mainstay of the Weekend section, writing about movies, theater and, of course, her column on dating. Prior to that, she covered tech and government contracting for the Business section. Ellen has ambitious plans to create a destination in the paper and on the Web for thoughtful, substantive explorations of love and relationships. We’re looking forward to beginning this new area of coverage in Style.

Here Comes The… WaPo Style Section

Internal memo from the Post:

Style is seeking a reporter to help launch a new feature covering local weddings (a/k/a the Sports page for women). We’ve got some ideas on how this might work, but want to get a reporter involved from the beginning in conceiving this new part of our coverage. We’ve got some ideas on how this might work, but want to get a reporter involved from the beginning in conceiving this new part of our coverage. Of course, we want this feature to have a strong interactive component, so we’ll be asking anyone interested to write a memo outlining her or his ideas for both print and online. Our strong preference is to fill this position with an internal candidate.

Interested? Please see Steve Reiss, Deb Leithauser or Peter Perl by April 13.

Maybe this guy should apply, we’re just saying.
