Stephen Moore, editorial board member at the Wall Street Journal and often seen on Fox News, is headed to work at the conservative Heritage Foundation.

“I really wanted to be on the front line of the policy debate and I thought Heritage would be the perfect place for that,” Moore said in a blog post at Heritage. “I honestly believe that Heritage is the most influential of the think tanks in Washington. I don’t think there’s really any question about that.”

Moore will serve as Heritage’s chief economist. It’s his second stint at the conservative think tank. From 1983 to 1987 he worked at Heritage in Budgetary Affairs.
