Pair of Columbia J-School Alums Officially Join TheWrap

All sorts of good things are happening at TheWrap this first week of September. On Tuesday, the Hollywood industry-focused outlet launched a complete overhaul of its website, an iteration being referred to as 3.0. In addition, a pair of recent Columbia journalism school grads who had been interning over the summer have both been promoted to full-time status.

TV reporter Tony Maglio, who graduated from Columbia this spring, started in a full-time capacity on Tuesday. He holds an MBA and B.S. in Business Management and Marketing from Monmouth University, and in fact was working in accounting and finance before he decided to make the transition via Columbia to reporting.

“I cannot believe I actually get to write about television for a living,” Maglio tells FishbowlNY. “And I could not have hand-picked a better place to officially kick off my journalism career than TheWrap!”

Steve Coll Named Dean of Columbia Graduate School of Journalism

Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and former Washington Post managing editor Steve Coll has been named dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. He will succeed Nicholas Lemann, who has announced he was stepping down as dean last October. Lemann had been the school’s dean since 2003.

Coll was most recently the president of The New American Foundation and worked at WaPo from 1985 to 2004. He is also the author of seven books, a frequent contributor to The New Yorker.

“Steve Coll is one of the most experienced and respected journalists of his generation,” said Columbia’s president, Lee Bollinger, in a statement. “Sweeping changes in digital technology and the global marketplace have created unprecedented challenges and opportunities for the news media that demand our constant reflection on the mission and substance of a modern journalism education. Our Journalism School is thriving today because of its innovative response to these developments, and Steve’s breadth of experience as a reporter, editor, author and executive make him ideally suited to lead the School in the years ahead.”

Nicholas Lemann, Dean of Columbia Journalism School, to Step Down

Bloomberg New is reporting that Nicholas Lemann, the dean of Columbia University’s Journalism School since 2003, is stepping down. According to CJR, Lemann will take one year off from the school and then return as a faculty member.

Lemann is the author of several books and has contributed to many different publications, including The New York Times, The New Yorker and Slate.

Lemann has held a variety of positions in the past, from managing editor of Washington Monthly to executive editor of Texas Monthly.

Lemann is credited with growing the Journalism school immensely during his time there. He added 20 full-time staffers, launched and finished the school’s first capital fundraising effort, ushered in a student center and debuted several investigative reporting programs.
