Nate Silver, the New York Times statistician whose accurate projections of the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections brought him national recognition, is moving his FiveThirtyEight blog to ESPN, employees at the Walt Disney-owned company told The Times on Friday.

Silver is expected to have a wide-ranging role at ESPN, the employees told the Times. Besides writing and crunching numbers, he will most likely be a regular contributor to “Olbermann,” the late-night ESPN2 talk show hosted by Keith Olbermann that premieres at the end of next month.

In political years, he will contribute to ABC News, which also is owned by Disney.

Both Silver and an ESPN spokeswoman declined to comment late Friday — but the employees, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the deal could be announced as early as Monday, the Times reports.

Silver’s three-year contract with the Times is scheduled to expire in late August.
