Hunter Hauk Finds New Home

by Jerome Weeks 12 Sep 2011 3:06 PM

You liked him in Quick. When Quick was deep-sixed, we hoped he’d get picked up by the Dallas Morning News, not knowing at the time that the Belo paper was headed for another round of layoffs. But now he’s moved up from Young Street, over to St. Paul.


It didn’t take long for well-respected music writer Hunter Hauk, formerly of the now-defunct DMN product Quick, to find a new roost.  He’s joining FrontRow.

The press release follows:

Good afternoon,

We at D Magazine would like to extend a hearty welcome to Hunter Hauk who joins our ever-expanding FrontRow team. Hunter joins us from the late-Quick, where he was a well-loved pop music columnist. He’ll be wearing a similar hat here on FrontRow, joining our other music columnists, Christopher Mosley and Dick Sullivan, to cover all things music – primarily local but with a dash of national to help keep things in context. We’re thrilled to have him on board.

Despite the weather that sent many local art lovers fleeing for cooler locales, it has been a busy summer here on FrontRow. The variety of our content and our reach continues to expand, and pageviews on the site have increased by more than 150 percent since January.

This summer saw two hilarious writers, Laura Kostelny and Merritt Patterson, bring their witty takes on two new North Texas-based reality TV shows, Big Rich Texas and Most Eligible Dallas. We also took advantage of the slower summer months to take a long view of some of the personalities who drive Dallas theater scene, with pieces on Mathew Posey, Lee Trull, Raphael Parry, Linda Blase, and more. Look for that series to continue in the coming weeks and months.

Off the site, our summer film series, “Dallas Outlaws and the American Dream” at the Kessler Theater, was a huge success. Our readers got the chance to catch three classic Texas films on the big screen, Bonnie and Clyde, Bottle Rocket, and Paris, Texas, and for the final screening, we were joined by Paris, Texas screenwriter L.M. Kit Carson and actor Hunter Carson, for a post-film conversation.

Not that the fall is here, stay on top of everything happening in the North Texas cultural scene with FrontRow. Visit the site today to find our previews of upcoming theater, music, movies, and art, and be sure to catch all of our reviews, news, opinions, conversations, and recommendations in the coming months.

Please let me know if you’d like to speak with Hunter or Peter Simek, the editor of FrontRow.
