Christopher Kimball to Leave America's Test Kitchen

The co-founder of a local company known for its popular TV show and magazines is saying goodbye, and it appears that a contract dispute may be behind his departure.

The Boston Globe is reporting that Christopher Kimball is leaving America's Test Kitchen "immediately" following a change of leadership that took place a couple of months ago. The article says that sources mention Kimball and his wife Melissa Baldino might be creating a new company, while David Nussbaum--who became the CEO of the company in September--hints to a contract issue, saying "We made every effort to offer Chris a reasonable contract that reflected his significant contributions to the company and are disappointed that we could not reach agreement."

America's Test Kitchen first started out in 1992 with the magazine Cook’s Illustrated, with the show by the same name and the magazine Cook's Country following, along with a radio show, books, and more. Its headquarters are in Brookline Village.

Lots of great people at ATK and the show, but CK is the glue that holds it together. Gonna lose a lot of listeners/viewers and probably the show.

I don't agree. I think he just has a huge ego.

I don't think the size of his ego is relevant to what I said.
