Washingtonian’s new issue, as is often the case for a magazine in a media-focused city, is heavy on little media items.
The most important, of course, being an exit interview with retiring-but-not fixture Chuck Conconi, who left the magazine last month with future plans TBD. After nearly three decades in D.C. journalism, Leslie Milk writes, “He is leaving with a Rolodex filled with the often-unlisted numbers of Washington’s ‘A’ list.” Conconi, for his part, reflects, “It is a cliché, but Washington is the most powerful city in the world, it is full of energy, and it has become one of the world’s most sophisticated and beautiful cities.”
Separately, the magazine also offers a suggested casting for “Deep Throat: The Movie,” including James Woods as Mark Felt, David Schwimmer as Carl Bernstein, Matt Damon as Bob Woodward, and George Clooney as Ben Bradlee.
In the print edition, Harry Jaffe has a piece on Post war correspondent Pamela Constable and her habit of taking in stray animals in the war zones she covers.
Lastly, the cover story on capital hairstyling, includes some details of where the rich and famous-for-D.C. get coiffed. If you want to share barbers with Wolf Blitzer, head over to David’s Hair Studio on I Street and ask for stylist David Tabo.
