It was reported Wednesday that Tina Brown, editor-in-chief of The Daily Beast and former editor of Newsweek, would be departing from The Beast and starting up her own "theatrical journalism" media company.
Brown hopped on Twitter to say her goodbye, citing former executive editor of the Washington Post Ben Bradlee:
Exciting news...sad 2 leave Beast but change is good. As Ben Bradlee likes to say "nose down, ass up, push forward!" http://t.co/BEaWTMmyWj— Tina Brown (@TheTinaBeast) September 11, 2013
