the author of this sloka is I think vyasa : this verse comes in

Who wrote this?

  nimagnaanaam yatha ganga, devaanaam Achyutho yatha,
  vaishnavaanaam yatha Shambhu, puraanam ida tatha, 

  kshetranaam chaiva sarveshaam, yatha kaashihriyanuthama,

  tatha purana vraataanam Srimad Bhagavatham dvijah ||

  Among rivers, the ganges is the greatest,
  amogn devataas, Achyutha is the greatest,
  among vaishnavas, Siva is the greatest,
  amog holy places, Kaasi is the greatest,
  among puranas, Bhagavatham is the greatest.

Anybody know who wrote this or where it is from?
