NYT to Host Political Polling Site FiveThirtyEight

Brian Seltzer:

The New York Times said Thursday that it would begin hosting the popular blog FiveThirtyEight and make its founder, Nate Silver, a regular contributor to the newspaper and the Sunday magazine.

Mr. Silver, a statistical wizard, became a media star during the last presidential election season for his political projections based on dissections of polling data. He retains all rights to FiveThirtyEight and will continue to run it himself, but β€œunder the banner and auspices of NYTimes.com,” The Times said in a news release.
