A week after Good Friday, Nikki Finke is celebrating Good Riddance.
The hiatus-ed one’s Twitter feed is dominated these days by links to Studio System content. But every once in a while, the veteran entertainment journalist chimes in about things like the Oscars or – in this case – the object of her one-time home office affections:
We believe the eight people Finke is referring to as having been hired, reassigned and-or tasked with additional duties are: Mike Fleming Jr., Nellie Andreeva, Dominic Patten, Dave Robb, Anita Busch, Nancy Tartaglione, Anthony D’Alessandro and, per her follow-up, Jeremy Gerard. Gerard was just announced today as the site’s new executive editor and theater columnist:
Penske Media Corporation’s Jay Penske and Deadline.com co-editors Mike Fleming Jr. and Nellie Andreeva announced today the hiring of veteran New York journalist Jeremy Gerard as executive editor and chief theater columnist. He will spearhead the expansion of Deadline’s Gotham coverage of media and the theater and lend his vast experience to the editing team on special projects. He starts immediately.
