Associated Press business editor Hal Ritter sent out the following staff departure announcement:

Chris Kahn has decided to leave AP to take a job as editor of the credit card team at bankrate.com. Chris joined AP as an intern in the Phoenix bureau in 1999. He became a full-time reporter in the Richmond, Va., bureau in 2000 and correspondent in Roanoke in 2001. During his years in Virginia, he covered everything from federal courts to presidential campaigns to sports.

Chris left AP for two years to be education writer for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel and rejoined us in Phoenix in 2006. He covered airlines and energy there before moving to New York in 2008 to be a national energy reporter in Business News.

Chris has done a great job for us. His dedication to the energy beat and teamwork have been valued and will be missed.

Please join me in wishing Chris the best in his new job. His last day with us will be Friday, Aug. 3.
