ESPN Lures Noted Political Blogger Nate Silver From N.Y. Times

N.Y. Times political blogger Nate Silver is "moving his FiveThirtyEight franchise to ESPN," where he is "expected to have a wide-ranging portfolio." In addition to "writing and number-crunching," Silver will "most likely be a regular contributor" to Keith Olbermann's new show, "Olbermann." Silver's three-year contract with the N.Y. Times is "set to expire in late August and his departure will most likely be interpreted as a blow to the company" (N.Y. TIMES, 7/20). USA TODAY's Rem Rieder wrote Silver's departure is "a huge loss for the New York Times," but a "major pickup for ESPN" (, 7/20).
