Yahoo announced that Ken Tucker, one of the founding editors of Time Inc.’s Entertainment Weekly, will join the Internet media company as TV critic.

Tucker started with Yahoo on Monday and is based in New York. Previously, he was editor-at-large for Entertainment Weekly and was the magazine’s DVD critic. In addition, Tucker has been a regular weekly reviewer for National Public Radio’s “Fresh Air with Terry Gross.”

Tucker also was film critic for New York magazine in 2005 and prior to that was EW’s chief TV critic and critic-at-large since EW’s founding in 1989. Before that, he was TV critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer. His writing has appeared in several publications including the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Esquire and The Village Voice.

Yahoo over the past year has been hiring writers and journalists from traditional media to build out its original news and entertainment content. Those include Katie Couric, as well as former New York Times tech columnist David Pogue, and Josh Wolk, previously entertainment editor of New York magazine’s Vulture.
