Less than a week after leaving the Boston Herald, today I was named music editor of the Boston Phoenix. Needless to say, I am extremely excited about this opportunity, and can't wait to work with Carly Carioli, who was promoted today to Editor in Chief. (For those keeping score at home, my nightlife agency, Vanya MMC, will be streamlined to accommodate just two clients: Boston skygaze trio Endless Wave, and my indie dance party, The Pill.)
Here's word of the Phoenix changes from Dan Kennedy's blog. And here's my pull quote:
Michael Marotta, a music writer from the Boston Herald, will become Phoenix Music Editor, replacing Michael Brodeur, who left the Phoenix for the Boston Globe.
