Marc Ambinder, a White House Correspondent for the National Journal and Contributing Editor for The Atlantic, is taking “a pause from daily journalism” and departing Atlantic Media to work on other projects. Ambinder tweeted earlier, “So I’m taking a bit of a pause from daily journalism, leaving the superlative @nationaljournal on Dec 31. It’s all good. & I’ll still Tweet.”
Politico reports that Ron Fournier, the Editor-in-Chief of the National Journal, wrote in a memo that he was hopeful Ambinder would return one day.
“I walked away from journalism once and came back,” said Fournier. “It’s my hope that Marc returns to the cause soon, but that is selfish of me. What we all really want is for Marc and his family to be healthy and happy regardless of the path he chooses.”
