Sam Sanders, the former host of National Public Radio’s “It’s Been a Minute” show, will host a new podcast for New York magazine’s Vulture website in the latest example of talent leaving public radio.

His yet-to-be titled culture show will debut this spring as a “weekly showcase of the best of Vulture,” Sanders said in an interview. New York magazine is owned by Vox Media.
