Shanahan left The NY Times to join the Carter Administration as the top public affairs officer for the old Department of Health, Education and Welfare (now Health and Human Services). Two years later, The Washington Star hired her as an assistant managing editor with supervision over business coverage and special projects for all the paper's sections. After Time Inc. folded the Star in 1981, Ms. Shanahan eventually wound up doing something entirely new: in 1987, she became the founding editor of Governing, the first national magazine devoted exclusively to coverage of state and local government.
