Salon Nabs TV Critic from New York

Salon has named Willa Paskin its new TV Critic. Paskin comes to the site from New York, where she served as Deputy Entertainment Editor for Vulture. Kerry Lauerman, Salon’s Executive Editor, told The New York Observer that sometimes — just sometimes — internships pay off.

“Willa was actually a star intern for us in 2006-2007, and I’ve followed her writing ever since, especially her terrific work at Vulture,” Laureman said via email to the Observer. “When the position opened up, she was a natural person to approach, and I was thrilled when she accepted.”
