Introducing Your New FishbowlNY Editor

ae_headshot1.jpgIf you read this blog with any regularity, you’ve probably noticed a new fishie up in this ‘Bowl. Let’s make it official, shall we? Meet your new FishbowlNY editor, Amanda Ernst


Amanda got her first taste of the inner workings of New York media as an editorial assistant at Forbes. Since then, she’s kept tabs on the industry’s movements via her own media job moves, first to Law360.com, where she worked as a legal reporter, then to (now-defunct) DNR, the Conde Nast-owned menswear trade publication. Since DNR folded last November, Amanda has freelanced for outlets including WWD, Forbes Woman and New York magazine blogs Vulture and The Cut.

Add her to your media lists, feed her tasty tips, keep tabs on all she’s reporting via Twitter, and continue watching this space for stellar New York media coverage.
