We learned tonight via WaPo that White House senior advisor David Axelrod‘s son is joining HuffPost.

Twenty-two year old Ethan Axelrod tells Howard Kurtz that he’s “been interested in journalism for a while” and that he heard about the job opening through his dad, who was actually a Chicago Tribune reporter before joining politics.

But don’t look for young Axelrod in Washington– he’ll actually be working in Denver, where HuffPost is launching a local edition.
