Beginning Friday, TheWrap will be the primary entertainment news source for Reuters.The site, founded by Sharon Waxman in 2009, replaces The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard as Reuters’ entertainment resource.
That is huge.
According to the release, TheWrap will provide the global news organisation with “movie, television, music and media news coverage for Reuters clients, including breaking news, analysis, box office and opinion pieces.”
Following last month’s tirade against THR by TheWrap Founder Sharon Waxman, the victory must be extra-sweet.
The announcement is accompanied by new hires to expand review coverage, including movie critic Alonso Duralde (Movieline, Salon, MSNBC.com) and music reviewer Chris Willman (Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly), as well as senior writer Fred Schruers (Rolling Stone, Premiere, Portfolio.com).
