NYT's Lovell joins This American Life
Joel Lovell departs The New York Times to join WBEZ's This American Life as an editor as well as The Atavist as part-time story editor. Plus, rumor has it Lovell is jumping on-board with addictive podcast Serial's second season. Lovell previously served as special projects editor for the Times as well as deputy editor of The New York Times Magazine.
Amusingly, Ratliff mistakenly tagged the wrong Joel Lovell on Twitter the first time, which inspired this exchange:
"Wait, hang on, it's come to my attention that I've called out the incorrect Joel Lovell, tho I'm sure they are both wonderful. Trying again," he tweets, adding, "May have to quit twitter. Or work with every Joel Lovell out there. This is why I need an editor."
Lovell responds, "that's so nice of you, Silvia. Very excited to work with these guys!"
Killingsworth quips, "i lovell 'em all."
