The big news that has all the local media in a tizzy today is the Howard Kurtz has announced his departure from The Washington Post to go to.. The Daily Beast, an online-only news site. As the Post‘s columnist on media itself (a metacolumnist?) and host of CNN’s Reliable Sources, Kurtz is one of the most recognizable Post figures to local bloggers and other media-nerd types.

Jim Brady, head of* and former Post colleague of Kurtz, tweeted, “When I was at, Howie was among the most open to new ideas and new ways of reaching his audience. So should not be shocked. But I am.”
