It is strange when world or industry news comes to you from your own Facebook feed but that is exactly what happened to day when I read:
Jim Brady is about to walk out of the building where he spent the most enjoyable professional years of his life. He’ll miss it a lot.
Brady’s departure has been in the works for some time but seeing this from his perspective gives it s a whole new dimension.
Wikipedia summarizes Brady’s experience as follows:
Brady began his career as a sportswriter at the Post in 1987 and has worked as a sports editor, managing news editor, and in other capacities, and was part of the launch of the Washingtonpost.com website in 1996.
