Lots going on these days at TheWrap. As we previously reported, Joseph Kapsch is set to begin Monday March 25 as deputy managing editor. Also, in a separate, unrelated move, Jon Thurber has been completing his tenure at the outlet this week.
Now comes word of another hire very closely connected to the incoming deputy editor. Jethro Nededog (pictured), Kapsch’s longtime friend and colleague at Zap2it, The Hollywood Reporter and Celebuzz (where he is currently), will be starting at TheWrap April 1 as senior TV writer. He will report to Tim Molloy.
The news was shared internally this afternoon with the trade’s hard-working staff and included the following quotes:
Nededog: “I’m ecstatic about joining the TheWrap team. Not only does it bring me back to the caliber of stories that I enjoy writing and breaking, but I get a chance to work and learn from some talented people who I’ve looked up to, including Tim Molloy, Joseph Kapsch and, of course, Sharon Waxman.”
