GLENN KENNY OUT AT PREMIERE
Adding to the already long list of axed film critics, Glenn Kenny announced this morning on his blog that he’s been terminated from his position at Premiere.com. One of the only (if not thee only) survivors when Premiere closed its print edition over a year ago, Kenny’s blog has since been a marvelous edition to the blogsphere as his colorful style and almost scary knowledge of film was wonderful to read daily (and the comments were always entertaining to read). Here’s his post from this morning:
I’ve just been informed that my position at Premiere.com is being terminated. What this means for this blog is still up in the air; I’ve got meetings this afternoon in which such things are to be negotiated. In any case, I now join the ever-growing ranks of film critics without staff positions. I very much hope to keep this blog going…and get some good freelance work, quick.
I had the pleasure of getting to know Glenn a little bit when I interned at Premiere and hope things work out for him. We all here wish him the best.
