Neon Tommy Editor Lands Job at Talking Points Memo

James Rainey documents Neon Tommy‘s continued triumphs today in the LA Times. From Rainey we learn that Neon Tommy pulls in more than 270,000 unique visitors and 360,000 page views a month, making it the sixth most trafficked college news organization in America. We also learn that the site’s undergraduate editor-in-chief Callie Schweitzer has already landed herself a gig after graduation–with Talking Points Memo.

We spoke with Schweitzer, who told us the job is “a dream come true for her” and that she’ll be moving to New York to start the job at the end of May.

Her official title will be “assistant to the publisher” where she’ll be working directly under Josh Marshall.

Congrats and good luck out there!
