Journalist, Broadcaster, Roaster
He is the theater columnist for the New York Post, the host of "On the Town With Michael Riedel" on AM970 in New York City, and co-host (with Susan Haskins) of the weekly talk show Theater Talk on PBS. His best-selling book "Razzle Dazzle: The Battle for Broadway" won the 2015 Marfield Prize for arts writing and is widely considered to be the successor to "The Season," William Goldman's classic 1967 book about Broadway.
Riedel's skewering of Broadway shows and personalities in his column have made him a controversial and often feared figure on the New York theater scene. He has been called "the enfant terrible of the New York press".
