Folks,

I am pleased to announce that Brian Parks is the new Arts and Culture Editor of the Voice.

Brian has a long and illustrious history at this newspaper. In a previous 13-year tenure as a copy editor, copy chief and senior editor, he wrote for and edited various parts of the Voice. From 1998 to 2003, he edited the theater pages and presided over the Obie awards.

Recently, he has provided backup editing for various parts of the newspaper and has proved to be an invaluable member of our staff.
Brian assumes arts editing duties Monday.

Please join me in congratulating him on his new role.

Tony
