The Hollywood Reporter has added some editing fire power to its website. Per an announcement this morning, Seth Abramovitch has been appointed deputy editor, while Erin Carlson and Jordan Zakarin have joined the publication as staff editors.
Abramovitch once worked alongside Mark Lisanti as an editor of defamer.com. He also helped relaunch movieline.com and has contributed to gawker.com. Carlson comes over to THR.com from AP, where she covered TV, while Zakarin was previously an entertainment editor and reporter with The Huffington Post.
“I’m very happy to welcome Seth, Erin and Jordan,” said editorial director Janice Min. “Their talents and diverse backgrounds in online journalism will be an asset as THR.com continues to expand.”
The site has also promoted Jethro Nededog to the position of senior reporter. He writes about TV for the blog “The Live Feed” and was previously a contriutor to both the LA Times and zap2it.com.
