Ryan Sager is a young conservative in a hurry. The 27-year-old journalist published his first book this past August, on rifts within the Republican party, and already has another one in the works: a John McCain biography due later this year.
But at the same time, Mr. Sager is going back to where he started: He has been hired as the online editor of The New York Sun–the daily broadsheet where he was one of the founding staff members in April 2002.
The previous online editor, Daniel Freedman, vacated his post on Feb. 14. That was also the date of his last post on The Sun’s “It Shines for All” blog.
Reached by phone on Feb. 19, Mr. Sager said that he wouldn’t be taking over Mr. Freedman’s blogging duties. Instead, he’s planning to launch a new political Web site next month, NYSunPolitics.com.
