Clay Felker 1925-2008

Clay Felker 1925-2008

Legendary journalist and founding editor of New York Magazine died yesterday. From Kurt Anderson's poignant, wonderful column: "Clay Felker’s own rock stardom as a media pioneer endures. It doesn’t matter that he did his great, seminal work way back when. So did Bob Dylan and Brian Wilson and Paul McCartney. During the seventies and eighties, the Times (and much of the rest of mainstream media) thoroughly Felkerized itself. Practically every species of insidery, smart-ass Web journalism carries bits of his DNA. He permanently transformed his white-hot corner of the world. And on these very pages, fresh chapters of his novel about the city are still being published every week."
