In the June issue of Washingtonian, the mag’s executive editor Garrett Graff takes his old Fishbowl fins out for a spin to write the quadrennial review of Washington’s “50 Top Journalists.”
The piece evaluates the city’s rising stars, anchors, behind-the-scenes movers and shakers and the best reporters at “explaining what news means.”
ABC’s Jake Tapper, NBC’s Chuck Todd and CBS’ Lara Logan were no surprise but the “rising stars” category was interesting. The category included WaPo’s Jonathan Capehart, Politico’s Jonathan Martin, FNC’s Chad Pergram, HuffPo’s Sam Stein, WaPo’s Anne Kornblut, NJ’s Shane Harris and WRC-TV’s Lindsay Czarniak to name just a few.
Check out the June issue of Washingtonian for the full list.
