In a post on his Chicago Sun-Times blog, the critic revealed that film writer Ignatiy Vishnevetsky will join previously announced co-host Christy Lemire, from The Associated Press, on the show.
Vishnevetsky, 24, currently contributes to publications including The Chicago Reader, Cine-File.info and MUBI.com. It is reported that he will replace previously announced co-host Elvis Mitchell.
Ebert's wife Chaz will executive produce the show, while Don Dupree will serve as director and Ebert himself will co-produce. The veteran critic previously said that he would be "involved in all aspects" of the show and would also contribute segments.
Ebert Presents At The Movies will debut January 21 on public television stations.
