At the Saturday night screening of "Noir City" in San Francisco, Eddie Muller revealed that he will be joining Turner Classic Movies as an on-air host. Muller appeared on TCM last January to present a four-film "Night in Noir City," which was so successful that he was invited back in June to host TCM's "Friday Night Spotlight" showcasing 16 films by such noir writers as Dashiell Hammett and James M. Cain.

A jubilant Muller said that the most important thing about his three-year contract was that it was non-exclusive, meaning that he could continue to do his work restoring films with the Film Noir Foundation -- the announcement was made by treasurer Alan K. Rode -- and presenting film noir festivals around the world.  As Muller wrote in his introduction to the 12th Annual San Francisco Film Noir Festival, "...TCM has provided valuable behind-the-scenes help to the FNF's restoration and preservation efforts. "I'm pleased and proud to have such a significant ally."
