Politico and Ryan Part Ways

Politico Click writer Kiki Ryan and Politico are saying sayonara, FishbowlDC has learned.

For the time being, Ryan is freelancing for Politico. We’ve learned that she has been feeling out other possibilities, including working for her former employer, the Washington Examiner, but that door has closed for all concerned.

Sources told us that while Ryan’s  relationship with Politico management wasn’t acrimonious, it was clear that it wasn’t a perfect fit on both ends. The publication has given her three months to find new employment. The back story is that from the start Ryan (blond on left in black and white dress) and Politico were never a match made in heaven. She has been a constant on the nightlife party coverage scene during her time at the publication and has, like other Click reporters, interviewed a slew of celebs.

We wish Ryan the best in her future pursuits. Back in January she gave us a pretty hilarious behind the scenes account of her time in Vegas hunting the Salahis (or rather, the Salamis as they were renamed on that trip). Read it here.

Politico had no comment. Nor did Ryan.
