Daily News' Dave Davies joining WHYY

WHYY just announced that Philadelphia Daily News senior writer Dave Davies will come back to the public station as a senior reporter, effective Jan. 15.

The government/politics specialist -- a regular fill-in host for Terry Gross on WHYY-FM’s Fresh Air -- joined the Daily News in 1990 after four years at KYW Newsradio. WHYY was his first radio job in Philly; he was there from 1982 to 1986.

Davies says his last day at 400 N. Broad St. will be Jan. 7. "It's hard to leave this place at such a vulnerable time, but this is an exciting opportunity," he told me. He will be charged with expanding WHYY's multimedia and Web-based operation, and will be the radio side's interim news director.
