And Now for Some Variety Rumors

Now that Variety is under the wing of Penske Media, the rumors about the paper’s future are swirling. According to The New York Post, the big news doesn’t concern the print side; insiders claim that Variety’s paywall will be taken down soon. Penske is also expected to expand the paper internationally.

Of course we know what you’re reading this for, you want to know who is getting axed. It’s perverse, but hey, we don’t judge. Here’s what  has been said so far: Neil Stiles and Tim Gray, Variety’s president and editor-in-chief, respectively, are both expected to get bounced. There’s a chance that Bonnie Fuller, current editor of Penske’s HollywoodLife.com, will replace Gray, but really, who knows?

Changes are definitely coming to Variety, so we’ll update as they do.
