Ex-Page Six-er Corynne Steindler Talks HollywoodLife On The Menu

mmm_2-3.gifJust one week after launching celebrity and style gossip blog HollywoodLife.com under Bonnie Fuller, senior reporter Corynne Steindler took a few minutes to join the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast with host Jason Boog of GalleyCat and guest host Joe Ciarallo, editor of PRNewser.

Corynne talked about her new job at HollywoodLife as well as her career from the gossipy blog Jossip to The New York Post‘s gossip column Page Six and beyond.

“When I started at Jossip I was reporting a bit but I was mostly musing on the media news that had already been out there,” she explained. “I was breaking stories but not consistently. So when I went to Page Six I really honed those reporting skills and really learned how to break news, get exclusives, report — like really report, not just throw in my opinion on something. And so I think by combining those skills, it made HollywoodLife the perfect place for me to move on to.”

Corynne also let Jason and Joe in on Bonnie Fuller’s role at HollywoodLife. “She’s here every day,” Corynne said about Bonnie, who she once interned under at American Media Inc. “She’s blogging. She’s editing. She’s discussing news stories and ideas with the staff. She’s helping choose photos. She’s totally, totally involved. And I sit right next to her, so it’s pretty awesome. We work really closely together to try to build the site every day.”

Also discussed: Corynne’s advice for aspiring gossip writers, what’s next for HollywoodLife and her craziest celebrity story.
