The following excerpt note was sent out by YNYC Radio:
Steve Smith will be joining us as the Culture & Arts Editor. Steve is coming to WNYC from NPR, where he was a senior editor on the Arts, Culture and Books desk. Steve spent 13 years as a music editor at Time Out New York, and for more than half that time doubled as a classical music critic for The New York Times.
He joined the Boston Globe as an assistant arts editor, covering museums and galleries in addition to music, then came home to New York City to establish National Sawdust Log, a digital arts publication embedded within the Williamsburg concert venue and arts incubator National Sawdust. Steve is also a freelance contributor for The New Yorker. Steve’s first day is January 24.
