Author, editor and blogger Andrew Sullivan will leave his popular online post at The Atlantic and join The Daily Beast. His work will start in April with his own dedicated channel on the website.
Sullivan (pictured, via) will also write for Newsweek, the weekly magazine that recently merged with the website. Sullivan’s site counts 1.2 million unique visitors a month. In 2006, Sullivan published The Conservative Soul.
Here’s more from Sullivan’s blog: “I am very proud to have played a part in the Atlantic’s self-reinvention in this period and its first profitable year in memory. To have played any part in perpetuating this legacy in an environment that has been as tough on magazines as any in memory is an honor I will cherish to the end of my days. But there are some opportunities you just can’t let pass by. The chance to be part of a whole new experiment in online and print journalism, in the Daily Beast and Newsweek adventure, is just too fascinating and exciting a challenge to pass up.” (Via Morning Media Newsfeed)
