Not much of a surprise here but Michael Brodeur, former editor of the Weekly Dig, will join the staff of the Boston Phoenix as the alt-weekly’s music editor on Monday, March 31.
Lance Gould, editor of the Boston Phoenix, believes Brodeur has the chops to take over the important alt-weekly post.
“Since Michael started writing for the Phoenix this past year, I have come to know him as someone who is tirelessly searching out new musical experiences, and someone who sees music as a vital place where pop culture defines itself," Gould says here.
Brodeur replaces Matt Ashare, the long-time music guru at the paper. According to the Phoenix’s phlog, the old-school hipster will continue to write the paper’s “Cellars By Starlight” column.
