Sudden change: I’m going to Los Angeles to be the Business Editor at GOOD magazine.
I’ll be overseeing GOOD’s economic and business content and leading the GOOD Company Project, an effort to reinvent the business index by highlighting path-breaking mid-size companies dedicated to innovation and sustainability.
It was a tough decision to leave National Journal, truly the finest newsroom in Washington and where I’ve done some of my best work, but I couldn’t turn down an opportunity to break new ground on an ambitious project. Plus, I’ll get to work for Ann again.
Twitter followers, blog readers: I don’t think I’ll be subtracting content with the change in beat and locale, just adding new themes. So if you’re following for politics (or whatever else I’m already chatting about), no need to worry.
After rounding out my coverage of the debt ceiling debate at NJ for the next few weeks, I’m heading west in August.
If anyone has any exciting ideas about business journalism, exciting companies or what one must do in L.A., do share.
