[A]fter a decade covering the party scene for Variety, Bill Higgins has moved into the THR offices on Wilshire Boulevard as a staff writer covering parties and Hollywood philanthropy for the invigorated trade, which is doubling staff as it transitions in the next month to a newstand weekly glossy. Higgins now joins recent hires Kim Masters, Allison Hope Weiner and executive editor Owen Phillips (glossy WSJ) at Min’s daily editorial meetings. Up next: a gossip columnist.
