Watch out Washington. There’s a new gossip writer in town.
The Blaze, a Manhattan-based news site that is just over a year old, has hired Eddie Scarry to be its Washington gossip writer. He’s not their first D.C. hire, but he’s among the early employees. Scarry also interviewed with Mediaite but the process quickly veered back to The Blaze. Like many budding sites, The Blaze has no D.C. office so the new reporter, who may or may not live up to his frightening surname (only time will tell), has been free floating around town.
“Eddie Scarry” is his real name. “Of course that’s my real name!” he told FBDC. “This isn’t Lemony Snicket.”
Some may remember Scarry as the Washington Examiner‘s intrepid Yeas & Nays intern. He graduated from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C. in 2010. Also working with him in Washington are Meredith Jessup, Becket Adams, Madeleine Morgenstern and Liz Klimas.
