David Carr hands 'Carpetbagger' to Melena Ryzik

After four seasons handicapping the Oscars and other movie awards, New York Times media columnist David Carr is stepping down from the NYTimes.com blog he created, “The Carpetbagger.” Carr plans to continue writing for the paper, but told Variety that last year’s domination by Slumdog Millionaire contributed to his decision to scale back his commitments: “Slumdog went out front and stayed there, and I had four months to swan about nothing.”

Culture reporter Melena Ryzik will assume Carr’s duties, continuing the Carpetbagger video series when the blog re-launches on Dec. 1.
