More Glean — and a new feature, Max About Town

We’re pleased to announce two exciting changes on — we’re expanding one of our most popular features, and adding something new.

An afternoon Glean
We’ll be offering a double helping of one of our best-read features, the Daily Glean.

Brian Lambert, one-half of the current Glean team and a longtime Twin Cities journalist and blogger, now will bring you two daily looks at the day’s must-read stories.

You can begin your day with Brian’s Morning Glean, a quick-hit look at some of the most intriguing and important stories of interest to Minnesotans. We’ll have it live on the site weekdays before 6:30 a.m. — hours earlier than we do now — for early risers who need a quick news fix.

Then, Brian will return each afternoon with a look at the latest talkers of the day. We hope you’ll like the extra helping.

Meanwhile, his current Daily Glean partner will be taking on new duties we’re excited to offer.

Max Sparber on arts and culture
Max Sparber, newly sprung from the Glean, will create a wide-ranging daily column covering the arts, nightlife and other goings-on around the Twin Cities as MinnPost refocuses its arts coverage. Max About Town will replace Arts Arena; it will be supplemented occasionally by arts posts by our current roster of arts contributors.

A performer, playwright and longtime arts and culture journalist, Max has served as a theater critic, arts/entertainment editor, editor in chief and feature writer at a variety of publications, including a three-year stint at City Pages. In 2007 he won a Frank Premack Award for Public Affairs Journalism.

We’re looking forward to following Max around the Twin Cities as he brings his knowledge of art, music, film and theater to bear on current happenings around town.
