THR Adds Two to Film Department

thr.jpegThe Hollywood Reporter has added two reporters to its film staff on the heels of Tatiana Siegel’s exit from THR in favor of a film job at Variety.

And they’re both familiar faces to fellow staffers inside THR‘s Wilshire Boulevard offices. Studio sources tell FBLA that Carly Mayberry and Leslie Simmons have been making calls around town announcing their new gigs.

Mayberry joins THR‘s film department after working on the ‘Convergence’ pages for the paper while Simmons moves to the film desk after covering entertainment law for the now-defunct spinoff, THR Esq.

Both Mayberry and Simmons had bylines in last week’s paper.

FBLA is also hearing a bit about their beats: Mayberry is said to be covering Paramount and DreamWorks while Simmons has been assigned Sony and 20th Century Fox.
