Longtime music critic Jim DeRogatis  has left his gig as a music critic for the Chicago Sun Times to concentrate on teaching at Chicago's Columbia College and write for the web site Vocalo.org.


He'll still do his public radio show Sound Opinions with Greg Kot, and will always be the music critic he naturally is. But he's cut the tether to the big media Sun Times, which is probably a sign of the times. DeRogatis has other options and is pursuing them.


In his new gig with Vocalo.org, he'll do the commentary we all know and love, and maybe even get hyperlocal with a focus on the Chicago music scene.


"DeRogatis also will be joining the expanding online community right here at Vocalo.org. Starting June 1, his daily “PopNStuff” blog will feature exclusive coverage of the pop music beat with what he calls “special emphasis on the incredibly vibrant Chicago music scene.” " reads the announcement.
