David Carr, the vibrant and mercurial New York Times media columnist and a central subject of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival documentary Page One: Inside the New York Times, died Thursday at age 58.

Carr’s compelling life story of overcoming drug addiction to eventually join The New York Times in 2002 is documented in his 2008 memoir The Night of the Gun. In director Andrew Rossi’s Page One, Carr became the de facto central figure of the film as it tracked the metamorphosis of print journalism from inside the newsroom. This morning, The New York Times published a remembrance of their esteemed and beloved colleague. Click here to read more.
