Howard Kurtz Leaves Post for The Daily Beast

In a surprising move, powerhouse media reporter Howard Kurtz has left the Washington Post to become Washington bureau chief for The Daily Beast.

Kurtz, who also hosts "Reliable Sources" on CNN, has worked for the Post for 29 years and has become one of the most prominent media reporters in the country. In an announcement on its website, the Daily Beast said Kurtz will "oversee the two-year-old site's coverage of Washington and will report and write regularly on politics, media, and the intersection of the two." Kurtz will also continue hosting his CNN television show, "Reliable Sources."

"After a lifetime in newspapers, I'm ready for the challenge of fast-paced online journalism," Kurtz said in the announcement.

Kurtz's move is only the latest high-profile new media hire. In recent weeks, the Huffington Post has added longtime Washington correspondent Howard Fineman and business reporter Peter Goodman to its staff.
