WaPo soups up Style section
The Washington Post prepares to welcome Ben Terris this January as the new political features writer for its Style section. He replaces Jason Horowitz who left recently to join The New York Times in a similar role. Most recently, Terris served as a correspondent covering Congress and politics for the National Journal.
"[I]'m incredibly excited (and a little terrified) to announce that i'll be heading to @poststyle to write political features," Terris shared on Twitter, adding, "[I] also can't express enough gratitude to @nationaljournal, which has been just the best place to work. I'm really going to miss it here."
Meanwhile, Post writer Dan Zak wondered, "Does our hiring of @bterris mean we all have to start dressing better for work? I gave all my three-piece suits to the poor."
"[T]hat's my only suit. Was my wedding day. You're good," Terris assured him.
"I can vouch for this," economic policy correspondent Jim Tankersley jumped in. "The guy who should be worried is @TheFix - Ben brings some strong plaids to the table."
"Oh I am ready," retorted White House correspondent Chris "The Fix" Cillizza. "You haven't even seen my 2014 wardrobe game yet."
... In that case, we look forward to the many ways Terris will be helping WaPo step up its game!
