Prior to this he was a senior writer for Salon for five years, and before that a contributing editor to Rolling Stone.[1] At Salon Boehlert won the 2002 American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers' Deems Taylor Award for music journalism, for a series of articles in 2001 on the radio industry.
