Steve Benen is leaving his Washington Monthly gig to be on MSNBC:
I have some news to share: after three-and-a-half years at the Washington Monthly, I’m moving on. My last post will be tomorrow and I’ll start my new career at MSNBC on Monday morning.
Working for the Monthly has been an amazing experience, but I’m thrilled about an extraordinary opportunity at MSNBC: I’m going to be a producer for “The Rachel Maddow Show” and an MSNBC contributor. Don’t worry, I’ll still be blogging; I’ll just be writing at a new online home.
That Jonathan Bernstein guy who fills in for him sometimes does a good job, so I hope he takes over. WM has been my favorite blog, along with NoMoreMisterNiceBlog and Atrios, for the past two years.
