Hollywood, Esq. Columnist Eriq Gardner Gets THR Promotion

We told you a few weeks ago about the foreign posting of Hollywood Reporter New York bureau chief George Szalai. He in fact officially starts his new duties as London-based international business editor for the publication this week.

To help fill the Manhattan gap created by Szalai’s transatlantic move, THR has rewarded Eriq Gardner, the hard-working and often headline-grabbing contributor to the publication’s Hollywood, Esq. legal column, with the full-time position of senior editor. From today’s announcement:

A contributor to The Hollywood Reporter since 2007, Gardner has been the primary writer of Hollywood, Esq., a Webby Award-winning entertainment law blog launched in 2008 by THR news director Matthew Belloni and Gardner. The site has been recognized as one of the best law blogs by the American Bar Association.

Indeed, Hollywood, Esq. is a feature FishbowlLA follows closely and has sourced many times. Prior to THR, Gardner was the New York bureau chief for Upside magazine. He starts his new duties today.
