FamousDC Gets a Makeover
Posted at 9:33 a.m. on Aug. 2, 2012
Look who’s all grown up and fancy.
The blog — and HOH’s best happy hour buddy – FamousDC.com has a new look and a brand new editor.
The Capitol Hill staple was launched in late-2007 by former staffers Amos Snead and Josh Shultz. The site’s been a big success ever since.
“We’ve had a couple million folks stop by the site over the past several years,” said Snead, now a principal at Story Partners public relations firm. “[S]o we knew it was time to update the design.”
The new site was designed by the NJI Media team where Shultz is a partner.
“The new FamousDC platform will highlight the Beltway’s most famous influencers and will provide a front-row seat to future events,” Snead promised.
“Most importantly, the site now matches [Rep.] Rosa DeLauro [D-Conn.]‘s wardrobe,” Shultz quips. “That alone is reason to come back everyday.”
The site also hired Morgan Gress, a regular contributor to the blog, to be its first official manager.
