Hooray for blogging!
At only 24 years old, Ignatiy Vishnevetsky has landed a co-hosting position on Roger Ebert's show Ebert Presents At the Movies.
Here's what he had to say about the honor:
"You have to be the best you that you can possibly be. There is a legacy here. But the best way to honor that legacy is not to be Roger Ebert or Gene Siskel.
I know it's a big deal, but when someone gives you this type of opportunity it makes you want to work a lot harder."
And here's Vishnevetsky on comparisons people are making between him and Gene Siskel:
"Everyone has been characterizing me as this cold analytical egghead guy, but I'm a man of extreme passion. I lean more towards Ebert who I liked more as a critic."
SO exciting to see a Blogger getting such a prestigious hosting gig…and at SUCH a young age!
Congratulations, Ignatiy! We wish U the absolute best of luck!
