December 9, 2010 at 4:15 AM (PT)
Veteran CHICAGO media columnist ROBERT FEDER has joined TIME OUT CHICAGO and will serve as media critic with a daily blog at the magazine's website starting JANUARY 3rd. The former CHICAGO SUN-TIMES columnist had been working for CHICAGO PUBLIC MEDIA's VOCALO.ORG before his recent exit.
"What better way to underline TIME OUT CHICAGO's commitment to serious, vital cultural coverage of the city than to bring aboard the man who defines the media beat in this town?," asked President and Editor-in-Chief FRANK SENNETT. "ROB brings to the table an incomparable ability to land important scoops. He's an incisive, insightful, must-read journalist who's coming off arguably the best year of his career. This is the biggest free-agent columnist signing in CHICAGO since ROYKO jumped to the TRIB. We're thrilled to be able to showcase ROBERT FEDER at TIME OUT CHICAGO and expand his already-strong readership base."
"I'm delighted to bring my blog to TIME OUT, and I invite readers to join me on this great new adventure as we continue our daily online conversation about CHICAGO media," said FEDER. "I'm especially thrilled to be working with FRANK SENNETT, an extraordinarily gifted editor whom I've admired and respected for more than 20 years. I can't wait to be part of FRANK's exciting vision for the future of TIME OUT CHICAGO."
