The Daily Beast Swallows Up WaPo’s Lois Romano

WaPo‘s Lois Romano is leaving the publication after 29 years to go to work for The Daily Beast.

See the extremely flattering internal memo…

To: NEWS – All Newsroom <>

We regret to announce that Lois Romano is leaving The Washington Post, after 29 extraordinary years, to join Newsweek/the Daily Beast. Lois started her Post career in 1981 after the Washington Star folded, and wrote for the Style section until 1995. During that time she became a specialist at writing political profiles and covering the Washington scene. She pioneered what became and remains the premier Washington gossip and personality column, “The Reliable Source.”

Lois has been a National correspondent anchored in the Southwest, covered the Oklahoma City bombing trials, and has been critical to our coverage of national politics and presidential campaigns for the past two decades.

She is a smart, fierce reporter known for her skill at getting people to open up to her. We will miss her greatly but wish her success.
