From Deadline Hollywood - Nate Silver is moving next month from the NYTimes to ESPN (for sports) and ABC (for politics), including presumably both blog and live work. Disney owns both entities.
This likely is a big big paycheck for him, much larger than he made for the NYTimes, multi-hundred thousands.
And unlike most of the journalists hired, he is willing to be held accountable for his work, since his accuracy will be the basis of his continued employment.
The Politico guys have new reasons to be jealous.
