The latest copy of DPJ Magazine has a new name and face on the masthead: David Leibowitz.

David was a perfect person to serve as our first-ever guest editor. Smart, quick wit and yep, mayyybe a little cocky. But apparently we like that sort of thing.

Mr. Downtown?
More importantly, he knows Downtown. Sure, he works with the Mayor, but his knowledge of this area didn’t come to him in the past year. Like many media and PR luminaries in the Valley, he has spent real time here. Residents tend to think they have the leg up on people who just work here.

Hang out with us
Well, that’s pretty much true. But, we readily acknowledge that people who only work here spend most of their time here, so the impressions made are important to the success of our Downtown. After all, we want them to spend MORE time here.

“Two of my big passions in life are writing and Downtown Phoenix. I’m excited to be able to put the two of them together and help the Downtown Phoenix Journal do some fun journalism,” Leibowitz said. “Between the Mayor’s race and the All-Star Game, this is going to be one heckuva summer.”

Fun journalism? Yep, that’s us. We love Downtown and we love infusing DPJ with that spirit.

Thanks David. Here’s to a Greater Downtown!
