Virginia Heffernan Gets a New Job at the Times

Virginia Heffernan, formerly a columnist for The New York Times Magazine, has found a new home at the paper. Starting Monday, she will “write regularly for the Opinion pages,” Heffernan told Adweek.
Heffernan’s four-year run at the Times Magazine ended earlier this year, when new editor Hugo Lindgren decided to end her column, “The Medium.”
Heffernan, 41, began as a television critic at the Times in 2003. Before the Times, Heffernan had written for Slate and served as an editor at Harper’s and Talk. She’s also working on a book, tentatively titled “The Pleasures of the Internet.”
