In an earlier entry today, we mentioned that Village Voice staffers were dissatisfied because EIC David Blum "only seems to be interested in hiring well-to-do white girls from Columbia". Well, it might help if you're still at Columbia. A tipster tells us:
This just in from the Columbia J School newsletter:
Courtney Reimer has sold her summer-term Master's project to the Village Voice as its cover on October 25. It's about strip clubs in New York.
Wow. More hard-hitting investigative reporting from the Voice.
And by the way, Voice's freelance baseball writer Emma Span (whose most unfortunate headline remains unfixed) is the daughter of writer Jon Katz and -wait for it- Columbia journalism professor Paula Span. Corporate-academic synergy at its best.
