BREAKING! Julie Taraska: I’m Out, Suckas

We read our monthly Metropolis Magazine newsletter cover to cover or headline to byline, but were stopped in our tracks today with the sign-off note from metropolismag.com‘s editor, Julie Taraska.

A final note: this will be my last newsletter as the editor of metropolismag.com. Thank you all for the ideas and inspiration over the past two-and-a-half years; you made my job a pleasure.

Both confused and emboldened by our recent forays into original reporting, we asked her if it was true. And it is. And she–being the second person to leave a magazine that we know–now officially makes quitting a trend. She’s off to be articles editor of Hachette Filipacchi’s Home. No news on who we’re going to have to butter up for assignments next, but we’re on it, and we’ll let you know. As soon as we’re done.
