Libby Hill will report and comment on TV in the paper, for the web and on Twitter. Here's the memo:
We’re thrilled to announce that Libby Hill will join us as a TV reporter, focusing on television and the conversations it triggers. She will report to Television Editor Martin Miller, and she starts today.
Libby has written smart takes, essays and articles on pop culture for Vulture, Rolling Stone, Salon and the New York Times. She will help us bring more immediacy to our television coverage, spotting thought-provoking stories as they break and reporting them out a chapter, story or tweet at a time.
She’ll range widely across topics and story forms, from recapping pivotal episodes of key shows to spinning out longer stories on trends and topics.
Before embarking on her writing career, Libby held a variety of jobs, including serving as an associate manager for Regal Cinemas. Libby, who attended South Dakota State, has lived in the L.A. area for a decade. She is fond of cats and likes to read (“The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” is a recent favorite) when she’s not watching TV. Her top shows include “Broad City,” “The Americans” and “You’re the Worst.” Follow her on Twitter: @midwestspitfire.
