Washington Post Loses Robin Givhan to Tina Brown


In a serious blow to the Washington Post, Pulitzer Prize winner (and Cut favorite) Robin Givhan is departing after fifteen years. She’ll be headed to work for Tina Brown at the Daily Beast and Newsweek. The Post “Style” section, where she long worked, also recently lost media columnist Howard Kurtz to Brown. Meanwhile, the same section has lost art critic Blake Gopnik as well — he’s headed to New York for an unnamed opportunity here.
