CNN’s executive director of CNN Politics Digital Rachel Smolkin today announced the end of the CNN Political Ticker after eight years of political coverage to the site.

Smolkin wrote in the Ticker’s final post, which will cease to exist come Wednesday:

“The Political Ticker blog died of old age on Oct. 13, 2014, after eight years of faithful service to CNN’s readers.”

“The Ticker began quietly in October 2006, fueled by a realization that a blog could capture and influence the political conversation. It hit 1 million page views during CNN’s 2006 election coverage a month later, and in its heyday became one of the most trafficked forums in political media.”

“But over the next seven years, the Ticker remained static as the media landscape transformed around it. Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram allowed political journalists to reimagine their storytelling, and the media world placed new emphasis on writing with personality and edge.”

Earlier today we wrote about POLITICO Pro trade reporter Eric Bradner joining CNN Politics Digital as a reporter for its breaking news team. Well just hours later, HuffPost’s Michael Calderone reports two more POLITICO-ers are set to join CNN.

Steven Sloan has been named assistant managing editor for enterprise reporting for CNN Politics Digital while Jedd Rosche was named breaking news editor. Sloan served as POLITICO’s Congress editor and Rosche was the outlet’s deputy breaking news editor.

Sloan and Rosche, in addition to Bradner, join CNN executive director of Politics Digital Rachel Smolkin, who was – in July – also hired from POLITICO.
