Maura Judkis, arts writer for TBD, is going to work for WaPo. The offer comes on the heels of another TBDer, Editor Erik Wemple, who has taken a job at WaPo as a media writer. “I’m really excited to be joining the staff of the Washington Post, and I’m looking forward to meeting the arts team at the end of June,” Judkis told FishbowlDC.
But before she starts at WaPo she’ll complete a short fellowship for arts journalism in LA sponsored by the NEA and the Annenberg School at USC.
Judkis said she has no regrets about working at TBD, which has seen a lot of bleeding of employees as of late as journalists head for the door. “I’ve had a blast at TBD, and feel lucky to have played a role in building something new, with a super-talented group of people,” she said.
Congratulations to Judkis!
