Atkin moves to The Times

Published:  01 March, 2010

Tim Atkin MW is leaving the Observer Magazine after 17 years, after his weekly column was slashed to just two paragraphs.

He is moving to the Times on March 4 for the launch issue of a new weekly food and drink section.

"My new column will run to around 950 words and will include a main, 700-word story as well as half a dozen recommendations," he said.

"I'm extremely excited to be joining such a great team, which includes fellow writers Alex Renton and Lindsay Bareham."

Atkin said there was "more need than ever for informed, entertaining and critical wine writing and I promise to provide that".

He also thanked those who signed the Save the Wine Column campaign on Facebook.
