Sports News Without Fear, Favor or Compromise

Nate Silver hasn't even started working at ESPN yet, and he's already one of the most powerful people at the network. He's getting a deal that took Bill Simmons a decade to get:

Silver will serve as the editor-in-chief of the site and will build a team of journalists, editors, analysts and contributors in the coming months. Much like Grantland, which ESPN launched in 2011, the site will retain an independent brand sensibility and editorial point-of-view, while interfacing with other websites in the ESPN and Disney families. The site will return to its original URL, www.FiveThirtyEight.com.
