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.

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.

Randy Cohen Out, Ariel Kaminer In At The New York Times Magazine

On the same day that Deborah Solomon was handed her walking papers by editor Hugo Lindgren, Randy Cohen will also be making his exit from The New York Times Magazine.  Cohen penned The Ethicist column for the magazine and now will move on to work on a public radio show about ethics.

Not one to waste any time, Lindgren tapped Ariel Kaminer to take over for Cohen at The Ethicist.  Kaminer previously served as editor of the Arts & Leisure section and worked at Lindgren’s old stomping grounds — New York magazine.  Kaminer is also a founder of The Ethicist and The Way We Live Now columns at The NYT Magazine.  Lindgren spoke glowingly of Kaminer and believes she is more than qualified for the job.

We are excited about the fresh new perspective and enthusiasm that Ariel will bring to the column.  As Times readers know, she is a terrific writer with an original voice and a wonderful sense of humor. She is not only familiar with The Ethicist column, she helped usher it into the world, and we feel very confident that it is being passed from one good set of hands to another.
