Say it ain’t so

Say it ain’t so? wwd.com (scroll down – 4th item) is reporting the NY Time’s magazine-beat reporter, and the rexblog’s most linked-to reporter (125 times), David Carr, is “moving into a different role, one that could be preliminary to his moving off the media beat altogether.”

Quote:

Times cultural news editor Jonathan Landman said Friday that Carr is expanding his scope beyond the business of media. “He wants to be able to spread his wings a little wider, and I think that’s fine,” said Landman, who was recently tasked to quarterback an overhaul of all of the Times’ cultural coverage. “David’s a guy with huge talent.” Landman did not specify how Carr’s role will change except to say that he will write for both the business and culture sections, reporting to a new editor within the culture department who will be named by the end of the summer.
