Politico reporter Reid Epstein is leaving the publication for the Wall Street Journal. He came to Politico in 2011 from Newsday. According to his Politico bio, he was once an intern for WSJ.

He announced the news on Twitter earlier today with some degree of sadness.

As lots of fellow reporters congratulated him and some emoted, BuzzFeed‘s White House correspondent Evan McMorris-Santoro had the most interesting reaction so far:  “A hearty congrats to @reidepstein, who gave me the best WH beat advice I ever got: Skip the eggnog at the WH holiday party.”
