Rembert Browne is joining New York Magazine as writer-at-large. Most recently a staff writer at Grantland, where he began working in 2011 and also hosted the “Rembert Explains” podcast, Browne begins his new role November 16.
He will cover culture for Daily Intelligencer and Vulture, as well as for the Cut and the print magazine. In particular, he will bring his prismatic lens to New York’s election coverage.
“Rembert is equally at home reporting from the front line in Ferguson, questioning President Obama on Air Force One, or writing a meditation on Nicki Minaj and pubescent boys,” says editor-in-chief Adam Moss. “His voice moves easily from literary to loopy, driven always by his intelligence and unusually wide-ranging curiosity."
