Well, score one for the Gray Lady. Brian Stelter, our TVNewser blog wunderkind, is leaving the friendly confines of the mediabistro.com server farm for the New York Times.
Here’s the Times memo:
You read about him on the front page of The New York Times last November, in “The Kid With All the News About the TV News.” Now you’ll read him in The New York Times.
Brian Stelter, the TVNewser blogger, is joining the Times next month as an 8i reporter to cover the media world for NYTimes.com and for the paper. He will report to media editor Bruce Headlam, and will work closely with Business Day reporters and with our friends in Culture, including television editor Steve Reddicliffe and reporters Bill Carter, Jacques Steinberg and Ed Wyatt.
