LA Times launching entertainment business newsletter
The Los Angeles Times is launching the “Wide Shot,” a newsletter focused on the rapidly changing business of entertainment.
Staff writer Ryan Faughnder writes, “Hosted by myself and edited by Richard Verrier, who oversees The Times’ Company Town team that covers the entertainment industry, the Wide Shot will tackle a plethora of topics and stories relevant to Hollywood.
“As with Company Town’s journalism, the Wide Shot will serve an audience of industry professionals — including below-the-line workers along with agents and studio executives — as well as anyone interested in what’s going on in Hollywood.
“Every Tuesday starting Jan. 12, the free newsletter will offer news and analysis on of-the-moment issues affecting the future of show business, including the streaming wars, the fate of movie theaters and the rise of Silicon Valley giants in the film, TV and music businesses.
“I will offer my takes on studio shake-ups, marketing mishaps, agency spats and labor disputes. The newsletter also will track big-picture themes such as the effects of the pandemic and the push for diversity and inclusion.”
