Ebert Names Co-Hosts for At the Movies


Roger Ebert's new At the Movies revamp, Roger Ebert Presents At the Movies, will premiere on January 21, and he's just announced the co-hosts: AP critic Christy Lemire and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, a 24-year-old contributor to a number of publications (the Chicago Reader, Mubi.com) whom Ebert first became aware of after hearing him chat about movies at a Chicago screening room. Lemaire has co-hosted At the Movies before, with Richard Roeper, but Vishnevetsky totally just got his big break. Duh takeaway: Always try to sound smart when Roger Ebert is listening.
