‘Ethicist’ Randy Cohen Out at New York Times Magazine


The housecleaning continues: On the heels of the news that new Times Magazine editor Hugo Lindgren sent “Questions For” columnist Deborah Solomon packing, we also hear that “Ethicist” columnist Randy Cohen will be leaving. He’s written the funny and insightful feature for over a decade, but now he’s headed off for other pursuits — namely, developing a public radio show about ethics. The column isn’t dead, though! Lindgren is expected to appoint a new Ethicist shortly.

Updated: That was fast. Keith Kelly reports it will be City Critic Ariel Kaminer.
