Pair of Columbia J-School Alums Officially Join TheWrap

All sorts of good things are happening at TheWrap this first week of September. On Tuesday, the Hollywood industry-focused outlet launched a complete overhaul of its website, an iteration being referred to as 3.0.

Still, with the recent departure of Jason Scoggins, Cindy Kaplan and Joshua L. Weinstein for Film Funds LLC, the following photo now stands as a rather graphic representation of the kind of turnover Waxman (and others in the space like The Hollywood Reporter and the LA Times) must sometimes deal with. Of the ten people flanking Waxman in this April 1, 2011 birthday celebration snapshot obtained by FishbowlLA, only one person remains employed with the start-up company today.
