Orange County Register Adding D.C. Bureau

It’s truly remarkable how the hits just keep on coming at the Orange County Register. The latest is one of the highest-profile moves yet by the very active regime of Aaron Kushner and Eric Spitz.

Starting April 2, longtime former Register staffer Cathy Taylor (pictured) will be back in the fold as head of the paper’s new Washington D.C. bureau. From today’s announcement:

Taylor served as a reporter, editor and columnist supporting the Register’s business coverage, and joined the Opinion and Commentary pages in November 1996. She was a member of the Register’s senior leadership team as vice president of Opinion and Commentary before leaving the company in November 2011 to accept a position at Washington, D.C.-based Eagle Publishing as editor of Human Events, a national weekly publication.

DC’s Human Events Hires Away OC Register Opinion Maker

The tag line for online-print publication Human Events is “More Powerful Conservative Voices.” So it stands to reason that if the publication’s new editor was going to come from Southern California, the OC would something to do with it.

In a website announcement posted today, the DC publication has confirmed that Orange County Register opinion and commentary editor Cathy Taylor will be joining Human Events as editor. As part of her new duties, she will also get the title of editorial director of Human Events Group:

Joe Guerriero, vp/group publisher of the Human Events Group explained, “It took many months to conduct a thorough national search to find someone with Cathy’s experience, but it was definitely worth the effort. We are thrilled to have this award-winning journalist and seasoned business builder on our team.”

Social Networking Gets Its Own Beat–Cathy Taylor at MediaPost

grasgf.jpgMediaPost has hired journo columnist and blogger ( Cathy Taylor to track social networking web sites, in its feature, Social Media Insider.

We thought this was kinda interesting, considering MediaPost generally deals with topics about, well, the media. Is social networking really considered “media?”

Taylor will find out. A former top editor and writer at Adweek, Taylor will scrutinize social media outlets, including user-generated content and blogs, scouring the cyber-universe for signs of intelligent life, and perhaps answering, once and for all, why we keep getting bitten by vampires.

Taylor talks to FBLA about her new beat:

1. Why does social networking warrant its own beat? Social networking warrants its own beat … uh … because the editors at Mediapost think it does. Seriously though, what’s interesting about it to me is that it is truly a phenomenon, but not one with a business and advertising model that is anything close to fully-formed. How advertisers and social networks can leverage the communal nature of social networks without being obnoxious about it will probably be one of the great challenges so far of this crazy Web thing.

2. Aside from their marketing potential, do you think social networking sites are useful? I do think social networking sites are useful as a way of keeping in touch not just with your friends but with your universe of friends. Particularly on Facebook, it’s possible to get a bead on what everyone is up to in 30 seconds. I wish more of my non-professional friends were on it.

3. Can we “friend” you? Yes, you can friend me!
