As former journalists, we still love to get —and share— the latest newsroom scoop. In Media Moves, we highlight the latest happenings in journalism and media.

#1 Meet the Press. Charles Gay recently shared his first The Biz Beat blog as the new senior editor for the paper’s business section. He’s been an editor at the paper for 16 years, covering a slew of topics including community news, state politics, business, sports and all manners of local news.

#2 Rest in Peace. Ben Bradlee, executive editor of The Washington Post for 26 years, passed away on Oct. 21. He was 93 years old. President Obama said, “A true newspaperman, he transformed the Washington Post into one of the country’s finest newspapers, and with him at the helm, a growing army of reporters published the Pentagon Papers, exposed Watergate, and told stories that needed to be told — stories that helped us understand our world and one another a little bit better.”

#3 Bisnow Business. National Bisnow editor Amanda Marsh recently announced that she is leaving Bisnow on Oct. 31 to pursue a freelance writing career. She has been with Bisnow for six years.
