It’s always tough to write a goodbye post.
When I started here eight months ago, the big media news was Rupert Murdoch and the Wall Street Journal. Kurt Eichenwald was still in the news. Tyler Brule had just launched Monocle. Then, of course, we even ended up on The Colbert Report.
But enough with the damn flashbacks. Let’s just say that the months following have been some of the most exciting, journalism-wise, of my life.
Nonetheless, it’s time for me to move on. So here goes… Seriously, I just want to thank all of you for reading. Thanks to everyone who wrote in with tips and, in some cases, commentary of staggering genius. Thanks to Ron Mwangaguhunga for co-editing with me. Thanks to my fellow Mediabistro bloggers and editors for being a killer crew to work with. Thanks to Chris Ariens, Noah Davis and Rebecca Fox for being Mediabistro demigods above and beyond the call of duty. Most of all – cheers to Dylan Stableford and Laurel Touby for taking a chance on me in the first place.
As for me, I’ll be working on some new projects. I can still be found on the web at my personal site and at nealnyc AT gmail.com, if the need to contact me arises. And, please, be nice to the new editors.
In short: Thanks for making FishbowlNY a pleasure. See you around.
