“Sooner or later, a man’s got to put a second line on the resume,” says Alan Sepinwall, the TV critic for the New Jersey Star-Ledger, who’s leaving the paper for Hitfix.com.
He joined the paper as an intern a week after graduating college; a few weeks later, the then-current TV critic had a scheduling conflict and off Sepinwall went in his place.
Why leave the paper, though? “Immediate interaction with a web audience has always appealed to me. I’ve been spending more and more of my time blogging the last few years, and it makes sense to officially make that my primary focus,” he wrote.
When you’ve only got one line-item on your resume, though, you know it’s real easy to keep to the one page limit. Har har.
