Bill Marx, WBUR's longtime arts critic, informs us that he's been laid off, and will stop putting arts material on the station's online arts magazine at the end of July. (He's gone from the WBUR payroll August 31.) In a note sent to his freelancers, Marx wrote that "sadly, WBUR no longer wants to carry arts reviews -- on broadcast or online." There's more to the story, though, as Sam Fleming, WBUR's managing director of news and programming, told the Globe.

To quote the paper's story, "Fleming says he expects the total amount of time dedicated to arts coverage at the station to increase."

That includes the hiring of a full-time arts reporter, Andrea Shea.
