New York magazine has named Nitsuh Abebe as popular music critic. Abebe will write reviews for both the print magazine and the new Vulture entertainment site. He’ll review live shows as well as albums across a wide spectrum of musical genres. Abebe will also establish a dialogue with the growing community of people that leave comments on Vulture’s site.

He starts on October 11.

“I’m excited to have Nitsuh contributing to both the magazine and the website,” says editor-in-chief Adam Moss. “He’s an incredibly smart, engaging writer who completes our roster of critics and will help us create authoritative, well-rounded music coverage.”

Abebe has written for Pitchfork since 2003, and was a contributing editor for their book The Pitchfork 500. He has twice been featured in Da Capo’s Best Music Writing book series, and has contributed to publications including the Guardian, eMusic, and the Seattle Weekly.

He joins the formidable roster of culture critics that includes David Edelstein on movies, Emily Nussbaum on TV, Jerry Saltz on art, Scott Brown on theater, and Sam Anderson on books.

In his new role, set to begin November 17, Wolk will oversee an expansion of NYMag.com’s Vulture blog.

As the writer of EW.com first regular TV recap, Wolk seems like the best choice for NYMag.com as it seeks to expand its online content selections.

NYMag.com Launches Sports, TV Blogs

sports section.jpgNYMag.com is already well-known for its irreverent and detailed coverage of New York, culture, fashion and food with its various blogs. Now the site is bringing that same voice to sports and television with two new blog launches.

“The Sports Section,” led by New York magazine contributor and Deadspin founder Will Leitch and NYMag.com contributor Joe DeLessio launched today and “Surf,” set to debut on Monday, will be headed up by New York TV critic and editor-at-large Emily Nussbaum.

In his introduction to “The Sports Section” today, Leitch said the blog will cover the “longtime New York tradition” of sport “with the notion that everything is just one big play for power and prestige and glory, and sports are the only venue polite enough to keep definitive score.”

“Championships, torn ACLs, club shootings, terrifying glimpses of John Sterling on the hypnotic HD screen at Yankee Stadium, the isolated and powerful New York press corps, the new trains to the Meadowlands, the $10 Bud Lights … we’re going to try to cover it all. The experience of being a sports fan in New York is unlike the experience anywhere else. That’s what we’re trying to chronicle.”

Sports have been getting more and more attention online, possibly to fill a void left by cutbacks in the sports departments of local papers that has been a result of the current poor economic climate. The Huffington Post also recently announced plans to launch a sports section.

Prior to that she was was the editor-in-chief of Nerve and has contributed to the New York Times and Slate among others. Says editor-in-chief Adam Moss: “Nussbaum has a unique understanding of the way the medium has evolved, and writes with intelligence about storytelling, technology, and the changing experiences and role of the audience in this new television age. She will be writing longer-form essays for the magazine, and quick-response pieces for the web meant to stimulate the ongoing cultural conversation that is already such an important part of nymag.com.” Full release after the jump.
