Gossip Extra‘s causing more buzz, this time in New York City with today’s in-depth profile in the prestigious Columbia University’s journalism review:
PALM BEACH, FL — Starting in 2004, Jose Lambiet had a near seven-year run as South Florida’s go-to source for celebrity news and society gossip. He plied his trade for the Palm Beach Post in a column called “Page Two”—a deliberate homage to the New York Post’s “Page Six.” While other reporters skimmed the surface of breaking news, Belgian-born Lambiet tapped his sources in the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Department and elsewhere to get all the gory details for readers in his adopted state with a taste for the outré.
But in 2011, he took a hard look at the newspaper and asked himself whether he wanted to ride what he felt was a sinking ship all the way down. He didn’t. So, after an interim gig as executive editor of Los Angeles-based gossip site Radar, he returned to his old turf last October to start Gossip Extra, a one-stop shop for the salacious in South Florida.
