I can hardly believe I’ve been trolling this fishbowl we call New York’s media scene for nearly nine months. Only recently have I started to feel comfortable among the network of friendly (and sometimes not so friendly) people I have met at parties, conferences, panels, happy hours and events since this spring.
Although I am reluctant to walk away from FishbowlNY, I’ve been offered a new opportunity that I have found hard to turn down. I am going to work as deputy editor for a new entertainment and lifestyle site that’s being launched by b5media later this month, Crushable.com.
And, if you’ll indulge me, I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who has made this experience at FishbowlNY so amazing — from my mediabistro.com colleagues, to fellow media reporters, to the tipsters, commenters and readers who let me know what’s what, for better or worse. Thank you for dealing with me while I complained about the life of a freelancer and told my own story about being laid off, among other things. I hope I was able to inform and entertain.
And, I hope you’ll stay in touch. You can keep track of me here
