Washington Biz Journal senior staff reporter Terry is leaving
Robert Terry, a senior staff reporter at the Washington Business Journal covering federal government contracts and government business, is leaving the paper.
Terry writes, “I became the third journalist to occupy the FedBiz chair here at WBJ and since today is my last day, that means my tenure will be the shortest.
“But after more than 20 years in this business, I’ll look back on this reporting stint as one of the more rewarding chapters of my journalism career. And that’s because of the breadth and depth of news and people I had the good fortune to chronicle.
“Not one but three government shutdowns, including one lasting a record-long 35 days. Blockbuster mergers and acquisitions. Contract wins and losses and protests (and in the case of JEDI, lots of legal jostling before an award). And plenty of C-suite comings and goings.
“People in this industry talk a lot about a sense of mission — indeed, it’s a point of pride that the work they do supports national security as well as day-to-day citizen services.”
