Today Facebook is a-flutter with news that beloved Twin Cities food writer Dara Moskowitz-Grumdahl is leaving Minnesota Monthly magazine for a position with MSP Communications, publisher of MNMO’s rival, Mpls.St.Paul magazine.
MinnPost’s David Brauer has the most complete version of the story to date, quoting Grumdahl as saying “I feel like MSP is growing, thinking about growing, and that’s sort of where I want to be, in a place going forward.”
In addition, Grumdahl posted on her Facebook account:
I’ve loved a lot of people at MnMo, it was a hard decision, I feel a little like I’ve been uncovered as a Nazi when I had been entrusted to guard the British nursery school… but I think it will have been the right thing to do.
No word yet on whether or not Grumdahl’s new job will have an impact on her appearances on Minnesota Public Radio stations (she’s heard regularly in the Twin Cities on both KNOW and 89.3 The Current). Minnesota Monthly and Minnesota Public Radio share the same parent company (American Public Media Group), and Grumdahl’s contract with MSP Communications includes a non-compete clause.
