New York Times Magazine to Get New ‘Ethicist’

Ariel Kaminer is leaving her spot as The New York Times Magazine’s Ethicist columnist. According to Capital New York, Kaminer is headed to the Metro desk, where she will write features. Per a memo from Hugo Lindgren, there will be a few guest Ethicists before a replacement is announced.

“Ariel took on a tough assignment when she agreed to be the new Ethicist,” Lindgren said in the memo. “As we all know, many of our readers don’t exactly greet change with open arms. But with her fresh, distinctive voice, Ariel breathed life into the column. Her counsel was elegant, well-reasoned and forceful.”

Kaminer’s last column will run in the April 29 issue.
