TheWrap.com Unwraps TheWrap 2.0

TheWrap20.jpgTheWrap.com debuted the second version of its entertainment and media news site, with new features including a “News River,” a “Deal Central” widget and Hollywood awards-season coverage.

The News River allows users to filter the news of the day by subjects including “Movies,” “Television,” “Media,” “Biz Moves,” “Columns” and “Guest Blogs.” The Deal Central widget focuses on Hollywood deals organized by person, project and company. And the site’s awards coverage kicks off with Hollywood journalist and Oscar expert Steve Pond penning a column called “The Odds.”

TheWrap.com founder and editor in chief Sharon Waxman said:

We are excited that with this redesign, we can better showcase our coverage as it is updated continuously throughout the day. We also continue to grow our offering and are delighted to have Steve Pond on board to anchor our special awards-season coverage.
