In honor of her 50th anniversary of covering the White House and to celebrate the release of her new book, Listen Up, Mr. President: Everything You Always Wanted Your President to Know and Do, Dittus Communications founder Gloria Dittus will throw a party at her home for Helen Thomas on January 19th, FishbowlDC reports.

Consulting firm Financial Dynamics acquired the powerhouse D.C. firm in December 2005 and renamed the company FD Dittus. Dittus stepped down as president and CEO of the firm to “pursue other interests” in June 2009.

When PRNewser called the firm’s D.C. office today, we were told Dittus “still has an office” there. However, when we called the FD office in New York we were told Dittus “is no longer with the company.” Dittus did not immediately return a phone call requesting comment.
