NEW YORK (AP) - Frank Rich, an institution at The New York Times as a theater critic, essayist and columnist, is leaving to join New York magazine.

The magazine announced Tuesday that Rich, 61, would begin in June as an essayist, commentator and editor-at-large. Rich has been with the Times since 1980. He said in a statement that he had “deep affection” for the paper, but that New York would allow him to “write with more reflection, variety, and space than is possible within the confines of a weekly newspaper column.”
