Occasionally, though, we like to call attention to news related to the Godbeat itself.
Alas, at least three well-known individuals in the world of religion news reporting have made or announced major moves in recent weeks.
First, there’s Daniel Burke, who has left Religion News Service for CNN.
From CNN last week:
Daniel Burke joined CNN Digital on Monday as co-editor of the Belief Blog. Burke comes to CNN from Religion News Service, where for the past seven years he covered everything from Amish funerals to the Zen of Steve Jobs. His work has appeared in The Washington Post, USA Today and The New York Times, and he has been recognized by the American Academy of Religion and the Religion Newswriters Association. He is based out of DC and reports to Meredith Artley, Managing Editor of CNN Digital.
Burke’s departure, of course, created an opening at RNS.
Enter former star GetReligionista Sarah Pulliam Bailey, who will join RNS as a national correspondent in June.
