Kevin Naff, formerly of the Wash. Blade, says expect a new publication on Friday

So I blasted the Washington Post Style section in the post below. But, there’s a great editorial in the Post today supporting the Washington Blade:

The Blade’s importance to our area cannot be overstated.

And, the editorial makes news. Kevin Naff indicates a new publication will start on Friday:

“We’re united and determined to make a go of it as an independent company,” Mr. Naff told us Monday. So, the former Blade staffers met to plot the publication’s future yesterday. Mr. Naff told us that there will be a new paper. The intention is to have it hit the streets this Friday. The name will be different from the one they labored for. Our hope is that its mission to inform and enlighten will be the same.


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
