A Little Birdy Tells Us…

That Washington Examiner columnist and former Editorial Page Editor David Freddoso will soon leave the publication and head out west. He didn’t answer an email request for comment about it and is generally keeping his plans close to the vest.

We asked Editor Stephen Smith for comment.

UPDATE at 2:37 p.m.: Turns out Smith had a lot to say! He wrote to FBDC, “David and his wife Nagore had decided long before the revamping of the Examiner that they wanted to leave Washington and move to Boise, Idaho, where her parents live. They did so because they thought it would be best for their two young children, and because they wanted a more relaxed lifestyle. Not that David will be idle: He and a partner will be writing a political newsletter from Boise, and he’ll be contributing a weekly column to the Examiner. We miss him already. He’s a wonderful colleague and a big talent — and I very much hope he’ll come back to the Examiner full time one day.”

UPDATE and Correction: In an earlier version, we ran with Boise, Montana but Smith actually meant to write Boise, Idaho and we should’ve caught it. Apologies to the state of Idaho.
