Times Shakes Up Its Hollywood Coverage

Interesting insidery news from Nikki Finke, who has good grist on some Hollywood coverage changes at the New York Times. First, the Times is dropping L.A.-based movie editor Michael Cieply, adding him to its stable of Hollywood reporters, and replacing him with Lorne Manly, a long-time media reporter-turned-writer in New York.

The move leaves the following reporters covering Hollywood for the Times: Cieply, Sharon Waxman, David Halbfinger, Laura Holson and freelancer Allison Hope Weiner — all of whom work out of L.A. — and media reporter, friend of FishbowlNY and Oscar blogger David Carr in New York.

Shockingly, the Times also decided to send only one reporter — Carr — to Sundance this year.
