Change at Commentary

Commentary has announced that New York Post columnist John Podhoretz will be its next editor. Podhoretz will be only the fourth editor in the magazine’s history, and he happens to have the same last name as the magazine’s second editor.

Podhoretz will take over from Neal Kozodoy in January 2009.

The official press release is here. For a respectful, laudatory look at the change, see the NY Sun‘s coverage. Otherwise, check out Gawker.
