Jose Lambiet Exits Palm Beach Post for Radar Online
Thanks to some dedicated reporting by the Juice's Stefan Kamph, we know that the cornerstone of Palm Beach gossip, Jose Lambiet has a new gig. After seven years as the Page 2 Live blogger and columnist for the Palm Beach Post, he is moving on to a new position as executive editor of Radar Online.
Thus, the man who has tracked down numerous scoops that cross over into music territory -- notably Donald Trump's recent local feud with Rihanna -- is staying in South Florida, but will be packing on the mileage as he begins covering developments in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York.
Lambiet posted a farewell blog at Page 2 Live today. In it, he remembers a few glorious run-ins, and admits to having a "heavy heart" as he prepares to depart.
"I love Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast, and not just because
it's my home," he writes. "There are few places in this country as quirky as Palm
Beach, Stuart, Boca and Wellington. News people who work here know
they're lucky because, indeed, there never is a dull moment."
At this time, a replacement has not been announced -- not a dull recruitment process either, you can be sure.
