Jian Ghomeshi’s Q hits New York City

Jian Ghomeshi has now become big enough for the Big Apple: the New York Times reported this weekend that Ghomeshi’s weekday radio show Q has been picked up by radio station WNYC, and is scheduled to air at 10 p.m., five days a week. WNYC’s Kurt Andersen said of Q, “It’s amazingly good—especially for a daily program, it’s incredibly rich.” So too, apparently, is Ghomeshi: according to the Times, his CBC contract was renegotiated not long ago, and his income rose “substantially.” [New York Times]
