Changes At NYT Magazine

Deborah Solomon will no longer be contributing her “Questions For…” column to the New York Times Magazine, reports the New York Observer.

Meanwhile, NY Mag says that Ethicist Randy Cohen is also leaving the magazine, though editor Hugo Lindgren is “expected to appoint a new Ethicist shortly.”

What’s next for these stalwarts of the magazine? (Solomon’s column has been running since 2003, while Cohen’s had his feature for over a decade.)

Solomon told the Observer that she plans on “devot[ing her]self to my long-overdue, almost-finished biography of Norman Rockwell…I also plan to continue asking as many impertinent questions as possible.” She may also continue to write for the paper in other areas.

For Cohen’s part, NY Mag says he will develop a public radio show about ethics.

Update: Well, that was fast. According to Keith Kelly, Ariel Kaminer is the magazine’s new Ethicist.

NYT’s Ethicist Stands Up For Freelancers

Money
In yesterday’s The Ethicist, Randy Cohen tackled this “stumper” of a question:

I hire freelance artists for a national magazine facing tough financial times. Must I tell them that they might be paid late or perhaps not at all? If I do, they might decline the job, and we cannot produce the magazine. If I don’t, I burn a lot of bridges. My superiors assured me that they will start paying contributors, but they said that for months with no results.
