Michelle Cottle Leaves New Republic to Work for Tina Brown


Yesterday we learned that Pulitzer Prize–winning Washington Post “Style” writer Robin Givhan left her fifteen-year gig there to jump to Tina Brown’s Daily Beast/Newsweek hybrid. At the same time, the Post announced additionally that art critic Blake Gopnik had left the “Style” section for a gig in New York. Today, Intel learns that his new gig is also with Tina. And in another coup, the Newsbeast juggernaut has stolen senior editor Michelle Cottle away from The New Republic. Cottle is leaving after over ten years at TNR to be a Washington reporter for the outlet. Tina’s not messing around!
