Thanks for the Mammaries

Here in the Fishbowl we like to keep our readers abreast of all the important media happenings around town. It’s fair to say we’d walk over mounds of twin peaks to bring you news.

We’ve confirmed that Anqoinette Crosby, the woman who, at one point, caused quite a stir in the newsroom with her “Post Now Video Cast” series, is out. So is the series, which ended in April. She was on contract and the newspaper’s deal with her has reached the end of its newsrack. On Crosby’s website a story about her boasts that she was WaPo‘s “first internet TV anchor in the newspaper’s 134-old history.”

Lest we forget, WaPo‘s newsroom staff was in an uproar back in January, embarrassed by an experimental product they considered poor with the anchor’s body parts stuffed into ultra-snug clothing.

Thanks for the mammaries, WaPo. We wish her the breast.
