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.”
