Also, I guess it never hurts to ask. Anyone need a food journalist?

Michael Nagrant tweeted that on May 1, believing that he had written his last restaurant review for the Chicago Sun-Times.
“Sun-Times did end up offering me a weekly food column after cutting the Friday section,” he tells me this morning, “but, as you know when one door closes….”
Lots of folks came out of the woodwork [after tweeting his availability] to discuss new options and I was really excited by what’s going on at Redeye. It feels really different. There’s a real energy there. So I decided to try something new. I’ll have at least one column weekly, mix of reviews, features and even some social video.
His first RedEye column ran today.
