Recently departed Chicago Tribune managing editor Jim Warren will move his On Magazines column to a blog at the Huffington Post. From the release:
"I have been an obsessive reader of Jim's column for years, so I'm really delighted that I can now be reading it on HuffPost," said Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post. "Jim uses magazines as a vantage point from which to observe our culture. Like The Huffington Post, his interests are wide-ranging, so he'll be offering his insights on everything from People magazine to The Wilson Quarterly, as well as uncovering hidden nuggets buried within obscure journals or overlooked in mainstream publications."
Warren's magazine column first appeared in 1979 in the Chicago Sun-Times when Warren was a staff legal affairs and labor writer. He brought his magazine column to the Chicago Tribune, where he continued to write it even while serving as Washington Bureau Chief for eight years. Warren continues to be a political commentator on MSNBC.
Warren quips, "If I had a buck for every [magazine] I've written about which is no longer with us, I could fly business class to Beijing."
