Well, the cat’s out of the bag. Matt Dornic, who has been with FishbowlDC for three years and simultaneously worked at Quinn Gillespie & Associates, is moving to CNN Worldwide where he’ll be senior director of public relations. Dornic accepted the position this week. We’re saddened, but thrilled for him as he swims out of the Fishbowl and makes his way to his next adventure. That pesky Mike Allen broke the news in Politico Playbook this morning.
A huge congratulations to Matt on a well deserved job move. Don’t think we’re letting him go so easily. Rest assured there will be a lot of razzing and splashing in the days to come. He’ll be with us until the end of the month.
As for FishbowlDC, this leaves a space open for a new fishie or two. We’re quietly talking to prospective writers, but if you’re interested, write me at Betsy@mediabistro.com.
