Gotham Magazine Sitting Pretty with David Muir Interview

Lucky? Genius? Both? That’s one way the question can be posed today about Gotham magazine‘s editorial powers-that-be.

Tomorrow, two days after David Muir was announced as Diane Sawyer‘s successor, the publication’s Summer Issue will arrive at newsstands with a long-lead Muir interview. Sawyer would have been well-timed in this context. But Muir, sub-headlined ‘Ratings Magnet’ and ‘What’s His Next Move?’ That’s out of the editorial-calendar park.

“James [Franco] and I both studied at a place called Playhouse West, and the founder of the school asked me to start teaching about four years ago. One of the reasons I wanted to move out here was to extend the school out here [from Los Angeles] and start the Playhouse West Brooklyn Lab.”

On the left is our indefatigable “Lunch” columnist Diane Clehane. On the right, New York Post columnist Richard Johnson, back at the Big Apple juicy-bites biz after a sojourn on the west coast. The two got together last week at Michael’s at the behest of Niche Media entertainment editor-in-chief Catherine Sabino.

“For their upcoming [May/June] “Women’s Power” issue, Gotham magazine asked me to select someone to have lunch with at Michael’s and they would report on our chat,” Clehane explains. “I invited Richard, who I’ve met of course at Michael’s but have never had the opportunity to lunch with. We’ve never really spoken at length, but he was game to do this which was great because he never does press.”
