RogerEbert.com would like to introduce Brian Tallerico, the new Assistant Editor of RogerEbert.com. Tallerico, who also writes about television for the site, joins Editor-in-Chief Matt Zoller Seitz and Managing Editor Hank Sartin on the editorial team. "We're delighted to have Brian take on an expanded role. His knowledge of film and his skills as an editor and social media dynamo are a great addition to the team," said Sartin.
Tallerico, who lives in Chicago with his wife and three children, has over a decade of experience as an editor and writer on film, TV, Blu-ray, video games, books, and nearly every element of the entertainment industry. He appears regularly on WGN-AM Radio, freelances for outlets from Film Threat to Fearnet, maintains a position as a guide for About.com, and edits Magill’s Cinema Annual, a highly respected reference guide and film studies textbook. Past assignments include Kirkus Reviews, HollywoodChicago.com, UGO, Test Pattern, and many more. He serves as the Vice President of the Chicago Film Critics Association, a Board of Directors on which Roger Ebert sat. "Having grown up learning about the art of film analysis by devouring Roger Ebert’s Movie Yearbooks," Tallerico said, "I couldn’t be happier to bring my experience to the site that bears his name."
