Say so long soon to Colleen Carroll Campbell, former Post-Dispatch staffer, who is moving to Washington to anchor a daily program on EWTN.

Campbell will be moving from Kirkwood for the new assignment. The show — logically labeled "EWTN Daily News with Colleen Carroll Campbell" — is slated to debut June 3.

"We're hoping the show will be a serious player on the international as well as national media scene," she said.

The new gig requires Campbell's hubby, Dr. John Campbell, to ankle his post as chief of geriatrics at Mercy Hospital in Creve Coeur.

Campbell worked at the P-D from 1997 to 2002, and later spent a year as a speechwriter for President George W. Bush. Her "op-ed" column ran in the newspaper from 2007 to last year. She is the author of two books on religion and has already been hosting an interview show on EWTN, a worlwide Catholic media network.

"Joe's St. Louis" appears online Monday-Friday and in print on Saturday. Holleman's "Life Sherpa" column appears Sundays in Everyday. On Fridays, Holleman is a guest at 8:10 a.m. on FM NewsTalk 97.1 , and at 2:20 p.m. on KTRS AM-550. Follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
