Howard Kurtz Leaves Washington Post For The Daily Beast

Our sister site TVNewser is reporting that Howard Kurtz is leaving the Washington Post for… wait for it… The Daily Beast. Kurtz will become Washington bureau chief for the site in addition to his current duties as the host of CNN’s “Reliable Sources”.

An interesting note on media clusterfudgery: The Daily Beast, founded by Tina Brown, is backed by IAC. IAC has been rumored to be in talks with Newsweek, which was recently purchased by audio mogul Sidney Harman from The Washingonton Post Co, the parent company, of course, of the Washington Post.

Kurtz is the latest star reporter to make the shift from print to new media, with Howard Fineman, formerly of Newsweek, recently leaving the news magazine to become The Huffington Post’s senior political editor.
