Ben Widdicombe Joins Gilt City as Editor-in-Chief of Brand’s New Editorial Site – CityUnlisted.comMay 03, 2011
Gilt City, the leading online lifestyle site, announced that Ben Widdicombe has joined the team as Editor-in-Chief of a new editorial site, www.cityunlisted.com. CityUnlisted.com will provide compelling editorial content for those seeking premium experiences, insider access and a trusted reference source in major cities nationwide.
“It’s a vision of the city as you want it to be,” says Widdicombe. “In a career writing about fashion, entertainment and culture I have been lucky enough to experience the best of what New York and other cities have to offer, and I want to show the readers of Unlisted how they can live that life, too. I hope Unlisted will also entertain as much as it informs, providing smart advice with a light touch.”
Unlisted will be a discovery guide for readers and will include such sections as “Breakfast Epiphanies,” a wry take on the day’s must-know news; “HiLo,” outlining high-value city experiences at all price points for readers; “Buy Curious,” showcasing one Gilt Groupe offer each day; as well as daily features of topical interest.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ben to the Gilt City team to help convey the unique, clever and engaging voice of Gilt City to readers nationwide,” said Nathan Richardson, Gilt City President. “Under Ben’s direction, Unlisted will become a one-stop destination that marries independent editorial with Gilt City’s curated lifestyle environment.”
Prior to joining Gilt City, Ben served as a contributor to some of the world’s leading newspapers, including the New York Times and the Financial Times, but is perhaps best-known for creating the flagship Gatecrasher column in the New York Daily News. He is also familiar as a commentator on popular culture for CNN, VH1 and E!, as well as international networks.
