amny Ben Widdicombe, amNY ColumnistBen Widdicombe, former Gatecrasher columnist and editor in chief of Gilt Groupe’s still-beta blog, CityUnlisted, will have a Wednesday column in the free daily subway paper am New York.

The column, called “Gilt City,” “will feature Widdicombe’s insider information on the latest and greatest hotspots to eat, drink and party in Manhattan, dished exclusively to amNewYork readers,” says the press release.

Syndication is but the latest and weirdest chapter in the Gilt-driven, e-commerce and editorial paradigm fuckery, but we’re glad that therein is a company rich enough to put Mr. Widdicombe back in print.
