New York Magazine Launches Elizabeth Spiers' The Kicker

New York Magazine's New Weblog

Today marks the ascent of Elizabeth Spiers into the world of corporate blogging. OK, it's not as bad as it sounds. Really, it's a good thing. Spiers, formerly editor and voice of snark for New York's Gawker - a "mix of media, gossip, entertainment, fashion, and real estate snippets", has launched The Kicker, a weblog for New York Magazine. The Kicker will deliver "news and commentary about the people, trends, and events that define New York culture."

On this first day, Spiers is already taking about culturally important items such as Tina Brown on turning blond for TV, Paper Magazine's single minded reliance on Chloe Sevigny for content, the demise of parties at Details Magazine and why she left Gawker for The Kicker: office supplies and Lexis-Nexis.
