Dropping Into the ‘Bowl

dylan.jpgToday marks my first official day as editor of Fishbowl NY, and rest assured, this will be one of the first and last posts “about” me. But here goes: Before taking mediabistro’s managing editor, media news slot, I was at FOLIO:, the revered magazine about magazines located in historic South Norwalk, CT (or, as I like to call it, “Brooklyn Way East”), where my focus was on amping up its online news coverage, traffic and always-indefinable “cool” factor. I plan to do the same, and much more, here.

In its relatively short history, FishbowlNY has been home to some of the finest writers I know, including Elizabeth Spiers, Rachel Sklar, current co-managing editor Aileen Gallagher and the omnipresent Greg Lindsay, among others. Shaq-sized shoes to fill, I realize. To me, this blog is as much yours as it is mine, so please drop me a line early and often with news, feedback, gossip, classified documents. You know, the real good dirt.

One final note: I have always held that my three dream jobs in the NYC media world would be, in no particular order: staff writer for The Onion or Daily Show; a beat reporter for the New York Mets (circa ’86); and working for mediabistro, a great group of people I’ve admired for a long time.

So here I am, with plenty of game, a mean crossover and hopefully great things ahead.
