J. Hoberman, The Village Voice veteran who was let go in early January, has a new gig. He has been named Chief Film Critic of Blouin Artinfo. Variety reports that Hoberman will team up with Film Editor Graham Fuller to help expand the site’s coverage.
Louise Blouin, Chairman of Louise Blouin Media, had quite the quote ready to go when announcing the addition.
“In an age where the accessibility to information is more universal than ever, we are continuing to challenge the boundaries of traditional news mediums by providing original content that stimulates, aids and enhances the progress of cultural dialogue in our global community,” Blouin told Variety. “To have two film critics of this caliber reflects the deep commitment on the part of Blouin Artinfo to build upon the strengths of our existing platform.”
