The New York Times Picks up Ross Douthat

Columbia Journalism Review is reporting that the Atlantic's Ross Douthat will be picking up where Bill Kristol left off at The New York Times. I spoke with Douthat, who is Catholic and in his late 20s, just before the election about where evangelicals fit in the Republican Party. Here's the NYT memo:

Folks:

Some exciting news. We've hired Ross Douthat, currently of Atlantic. Ross will be joining the Times staff in mid-April and will be based in the Washington bureau. He will start out primarily online, but will soon be writing with increasing frequency, and then regularity, on the Op-Ed page, in the Monday slot opposite Paul. At some point, he'll also resume his work as a blogger, which I highly recommend.

If you don't know Ross, you'll find him funny and smart and sharp. He's going to be a great addition to our team. I know you'll make him welcome.

By the way, if you stumble over his name like I do, it's "Dow-thut."
