WaPo names op-ed columnist

The Washington Post has plucked up Catherine Rampell to join its ranks as an op-ed columnist. Previously at the New York Times since 2008, Rampell is known for founding the Times' Economix blog.

"Last day at the @nytimes. Thanks everyone for a fabulous 5+ years," Rampell tweeted, admitting, "I will very much miss working at the Gray Lady."

"Congrats to @crampell. Great hire by WaPo," BI's Joe Weisenthal decided.

In her stead, NYT deputy business editor Kevin McKenna takes over as editor for Economix.
