No word yet on the long-term plan. But we hear that WaPo staff writer Paul Farhi will be filling in for longtime WaPo media writer Howard Kurtz. Kurtz, who hosts CNN’s Reliable Sources, is transitioning to The Daily Beast, where he will be the Washington Bureau Chief.

Farhi largely covers the world of pop culture, movies, media and trends. Check out this online chat from January. Or this one from August where he discusses Dr. Laura Schlessinger‘s use of the n-word.
