McCarter heads to New York magazine

New legit critic takes new post June 1

Jeremy McCarter of the New York Sun replaces John Simon as legit critic at New York magazine.

Simon ends a 37-season run at the Gotham weekly.

McCarter begins work at his new gig on June 1.

New York’s Adam Moss put a happy spin on the big switch. “John has outlasted every critic in the long and illustrious line of cultural writers for this magazine — and almost every other critic in this business,” said the editor-in-chief. “It has been an incredible ride. He will be missed.”
