Romenesko Misc.
Last Tuesday was Columbia Journalism Review editor-in-chief application deadline. (It’s a newly created position. “We received more than 40 responses, and they included a pool of some very high quality people,” CJR chairman Victor Navasky tells me. “We are impressed with both the applicants the news outlets with which they are or have been affiliated. Our goal is to have found our man/woman by the end of the summer.”
