Liz Benjamin Leaving The Daily News

The prolific political blogger Liz Benjamin is leaving The Daily News, Ben Smith reports. She will be hosting the show Capitol Tonight on Time Warner Cable (a show that isn’t aired in the city). She’ll be writing a blog there as well, and she’ll apparently appear on NY1 as well. 

It’s a big hit for the News. Liz Benjamin was Ben Smith’s replacement after he left the News to go to Politico, so they’ll be in the market for a replacement right away.
