GalleyCat for Your Ears

Podcast host and TVNewser blogger Steve Krakauer retired from the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast this morning. GalleyCat editor Jason Boog will be stepping into Krakauer’s big pair of shoes on Monday morning.

If you are a journalist, writer, blogger, media-type, publicist, or book-lover who wants to appear on the show, there’s a wide-open guest calendar for the next few months. Topics will range from media news to publishing to newspapers to movies to magazines to culture to television, and, perhaps most importantly, books. Email Jason for more details.

Here’s more on Krakauer’s last show: “Mediabistro.com editorial director Rebecca Fox and AgencySpy editor Matt Van Hoven helped send off Steve with some discussion about The New York Times‘s Bill Keller reporting from the frontlines of Iran and a reliving of the time Rush Limbaugh gave a shout out to the podcast. Also: what Steve has learned since launching the podcast a few months ago and some love lockdown.”
