Howard Fineman, who the New York Times calls "one of the more recognizable pundits on cable television and a correspondent for Newsweek for 30 years," is leaving the magazine to become a senior editor on politics at The Huffington Post. NYT:
Mr. Fineman’s move from print media to the world of online news is a sign that The Huffington Post, which has so far relied heavily on younger bloggers, is maturing. And it signals that the site, which has become one of the largest news destinations on the web since it launched in 2005, is investing significantly in its growth....
Mr. Fineman, who will begin his new job this week, will become senior politics editor, overseeing and steering The Huffington Post’s political coverage from its Washington bureau. He will remain a paid analyst for MSNBC, but will have to discontinue his column for MSNBC.com.
Would the last byline at Newsweek please turn out the lights.
