Rebecca02.jpgWell, the time has come: After three years here at mediabistro.com, Rebecca L. Fox, Editorial Director, Strategy & Development, is leaving us. Tina Brown wooed her away to The Daily Beast, where she’ll be Director of Editorial Development and Operations.

It sucks to see Rebecca go, but nice to see media companies — any company — hiring. And we’ll be hiring too. The search is on for Rebecca’s replacement. We’ll be posting the job soon.

    Mediabistro Circus will kick off Tuesday, June 2 with a presentation about self-promotion by Tim Ferriss, the author of the best seller “The 4-Hour Workweek.” In today’s difficult job climate, its more important than ever for journalists (employed or otherwise), freelance writers, bloggers and authors to use all the tools available to them to promote themselves and their work.

    And if that doesn’t grab your attention, perhaps you will enjoy the panel called “Strange Bedfellows: The [New] Media Deal,” featuring Chuck Cordray and Tom Smith from Hearst‘s Digital Media side and NYmag.com‘s general manager Michael Silberman, moderated by FBNY managing editor Rebecca L. Fox.

    And of course, on Wednesday afternoon there will be a performance by Cirque du Soleil.

Massachusetts senator John Kerry has also spoken out in support of the Globe, calling for Senate committee hearings on the future of the newspaper industry in response to the crisis.

    Earlier today, we spoke with Scott Allen, an investigative reporter who’s been at the Globe for almost 17 years, to get his take on the mood in the newsroom…
