It’s not a surprise that former Village Voice editor/writer/columnist Robert Christgau (hell, he build up the whole music scribbing community there) would find work after the new Voice owners stupidly fired him. It was just a matter of where he would wind up. He’s now found a good home at National Public Radio where he’ll be working as a contributing critic: more details from the NPR press release. Now the only question is, will he bring his grading system to the airwaves?
