|Aug 23, 2019|| 6|
This week’s three publications to read are...
Delia Cai, Deez Links
What’s it about? A daily link to interesting things in the media business, with Friday Q&As.
Worth reading: “Maggie Haberman had to WHAT?????”
Key line: “Maggie Haberman had to give her giant book advance back because of Glenn Thrush’s sexual misconduct allegations BUT HE GOT TO KEEP HIS (yes, you read that right; yes, our eyeballs veins popped, too)...”
Delia’s credits: Growth & trends editor at BuzzFeed, bylines in The Cut, New York Times, GQ, and more.
Terrell Johnson, The Half Marathoner
What’s it about? Stories, conversation, race deals, and advice about running as a practice and pastime.
Key line: “One of the biggest challenges my wife and I experience is how we manage when we exercise. Not because we disagree on whether it’s important or that we don’t support one another — we agree completely, and want nothing less than for each other to be our best. But fitting it in our schedules can sometimes border on the impossible.”
Terrell’s credits: Former journalist and editor for The Weather Channel’s weather.com.
Julia Carpenter, A Woman to Know
What’s it about? Pithy profiles of fascinating women.
Worth reading: “Belle Starr”
Key line: “Ever the lady, Belle always rose side saddle and wore a feathered riding hat — even as she toted two guns and galloped away from authorities.”
Julia’s credits: Reporter at Wall Street Journal, bylines in Vogue, Washington Post, Elle, and more, mentor at Girls Write Now
