EXCLUSIVE: Garrett Graff Joins POLITICO Magazine


By Nick Massella Comment

A source tells us that Garrett Graff, who left Washingtonian in April where he served as editor-in-chief for five years, most recently joined POLITICO Magazine.

Graff told the Washington City Paper at the time of his departure that he didn’t yet have concrete plans on what’s next, but that he is, “looking forward to a new challenge, wherever that may lie,” and that he will probably spend a good part of his time finishing up his third book, a history of the Cold War, for Simon and Schuster.

Washingtonian in June named Michael Schaffer Graff’s replacement as editor.

Graff edited FishbowlDC from January 2005 to May 2006, when Patrick Gavin took over.

UPDATE  (3:52pm): An update from POLITICO confirms that Graff has joined the magazine, official today, as a senior staff writer.
