Carl Bialik, who wrote the Numbers Guy column for The Wall Street Journal, said goodbye to his colleagues in an email sent late Sunday night.

Monday is my last day at the Journal, nearly 12 years after I started on the WSJ.com night shift, in South Brunswick on Super Bowl Sunday. The WSJ took me to places I never imagined alongside some of the world’s best and brightest journalists. It’s been a long, fun trip, via Harborside, three different New York offices and London, with side trips this year to Luxembourg, San Marino and Belgrade. Along the way: a WSJ.com internship, the night shift, the Daily Fix column, WSJ.com tech coverage, the Numbers Guy column, blog outreach, the online Count column and Statshot.

On Tuesday, I start at ESPN, working with Nate Silver at 538. Keep in touch at bialik@gmail.com. And first, please have a drink with me: if you’re in London, at Crown Tavern tomorrow; or in New York, the following Monday at St. Andrew’s.

Bialik holds a degree in mathematics and physics from Yale University.
