Gilbert Cruz named television editor at The New York Times

The New York Times Company

Gilbert Cruz, formerly the editorial director at Vulture.com, has been named television editor at The New York Times.

Cruz, who was a senior editor and staff writer at Time magazine before joining Vulture, will bring his knowledge of “the sprawling universe of television” to The Times, according to a memo from New York Times culture editor Danielle Mattoon:

Gilbert comes from New York Magazine, where he has been running Vulture, the culture machine that has kept me and every other arts editor in America in a constant state of ‘Why-didn’t-I-think-of-that?’ dismay. He is fluent in all aspects of pop culture, but especially film and — most relevant here — the sprawling universe of television, which he oversaw and brought to order at Vulture.

Cruz tweeted that he has some binge-watching to do before he begins his new gig:

His first day is Feb. 4. Here’s the full memo:

I’m delighted to announce that Gilbert Cruz will be our new Television Editor. Gilbert comes from New York Magazine, where he has been running Vulture, the culture machine that has kept me and every other arts editor in America in a constant state of ‘Why-didn’t-I-think-of-that?’ dismay. He is fluent in all aspects of pop culture, but especially film and — most relevant here — the sprawling universe of television, which he oversaw and brought to order at Vulture.

Before New York he was at Time, where he launched and edited Time.com’s entertainment vertical and developed Populist, an ASME-winning iPad app. He also did a stint as education reporter and ran the magazine’s Briefing section.

Talk to former colleagues of Gilbert’s, as I have, and a note of envy enters their voice. His writers miss him and old bosses want him back. He’s full of ideas, vision and energy, all of which he is eager to bring to our television coverage.

Gilbert grew up in the Bronx, is a lifelong New Yorker, and lives in Brooklyn with his wife and infant son. Please join me in welcoming him when he starts Wednesday, Feb 4th.
