Criticwire’s sister in blog-dom, Thompson on Hollywood, reports that Mike Ryan, whose position was recently eliminated from the Huffington Post, has swiftly landed a new gig at ScreenCrush, where he’ll be writing and contributing to its forthcoming YouTube channel.
In a post on ScreenCrush, Ryan’s new editor, Mike Sampson, wrote:
I’m beyond thrilled to have Mike join the ScreenCrush team as our new Senior Editor. As a fan, I’ve followed his work on the web for years and he’s one of the smartest, funniest and most passionate writers I know. His unique interviews, insightful reviews and in-depth features will be a fantastic addition to the site and further solidify ScreenCrush as an industry-leading authority and content creator in the movies and television space. Which is all just fancy talk for, we’re gonna be making a bunch of stuff we really think you’re going to love.
Congratulations to Ryan on the new gig. While you’re waiting for him to move into his new digs, enjoy his final HuffPo piece, a robust defense of “The Ice Pirates.”
