Carr is a business columnist and culture reporter for The New York Times. Every Monday, his Media Equation column explores the implications of the changing media landscape. He also writes about film, television, music and theater for the culture pages. Carr is the author of “The Night of the Gun,” a New York Times bestseller that applied the tools of reporting to the genre of memoir. When he is not too busy on Twitter, he writes, blogs and makes videos on various topics at the Times. In 2014, Carr was named the Lack Professor Media Studies at Boston University, where he teaches part-time. Carr grew up in Minnesota, watched both the movie and television version of “Fargo” without irony, and thinks it’s the rest of the world that talks funny. He has never been to Alaska, a secret shame he is looking forward to erasing.
