Post Junkets

Is this how the Post is burning its money right now?

DCRTV reports that WJFK-FM afternoon personality Don Geronimo was vacationing in Jamaica recently when he ran into 200 Washington Post employees attending a conference at his hotel.

Anyone have any details? Was this an all-advertising staff junket? It must be very reassuring to news staffers that they were left behind toiling in the newsroom while the business staff partied in the Caribbean.

> An emailer adds: “Yup, it was the Post advertising staff in Jamaica. They do this every year, if not more so. Meantime, the journalists have to keep toiling back in the newsroom. When you bring in revenue, like the sales team does, you get the perks!”
