24 year old blogger gets hosting gig on ebert show

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!
