Chuck Klosterman Named New York Times Magazine Ethicist [Update]

Well how’s this for a splash: The New York Times Magazine has named Chuck Klosterman its new Ethicist. The Atlantic Wire reports that Klosterman confirmed the news via email, writing, “This is a job I’ve wanted for 10 years. I don’t claim to be more ethical than anyone else, or even more ethical than the average person. But I love thinking about these types of problems, and I’ll try to be interesting. We’ll see what happens.”

Klosterman will succeed Ariel Kaminer, who moved to the paper’s Metro desk in late April.

A new Twitter account Klosterman specifically set up for the new gig can be found here.

As big Klosterman fans, we’re very excited about this.

UPDATE:
Here is his first column.
