Broadcasting & Cable Adds Programming and Digital Media Editor

A new career chapter has begun for former Metro New York chief film critic Daniel Holloway. After a stint as executive editor of Backstage both here and in Los Angeles, Holloway is carrying on starting today for another trade publication – Broadcasting & Cable.

Broadcasting&CableLogoAs the website and weekly magazine‘s programming and digital media editor, Holloway will remain based in LA and report to B&C editor-in-chief Melissa Grego. From the announcement:

“Daniel is one of the most versatile, curious and energetic journalists covering media and entertainment today,” Grego said. “As the amount of programming and the ways it’s consumed continue to grow, B&C is incredibly fortunate to have Daniel, with his great instincts and insights, covering this fast-changing part of the TV landscape.”

Holloway’s beat will include the tracking and analysis of programming strategies made by broadcast, basic cable and pay-TV networks as well as keeping tabs on new-technology distribution players. Holloway has in the past contributed to Spin magazine, US Weekly and the Miami Herald. He was also a guest host and film critic for NPR national morning news program The Bryant Park Project.

Moving into Holloway’s vacated executive editor slot at Backstage is the publication’s senior editor Mark Peikert. Congrats to both.
