In addition to teaching the craft of journalism, Mr. Kuntzman will oversee its practice on The Local-Fort Greene, CUNY’s hyperlocal online news collaboration with The New York Times.

Prior to joining Paper in 2005, Mr. Kuntzman was a longtime columnist at The New York Post and Newsweek, and wrote books on baldness and Chrismukkah, as well as an off-Broadway play, SUV: The Musical.

Mr. Kuntzman had no comment on his successor, but applauded the work of his fellow editor Vince Dimiceli.
