Daily News' Dave Davies joining WHYY

The City Hall veteran had been at the paper since 1990.

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.
