As I mentioned a few days ago, I am headed off to bastion of vox pop, TMZ.com starting on Monday, where I’ll be writing the City of Industry column – essentially, all about Hollywood’s foibles in business.
After today, I am handing off the vaunted FishbowlLA to a variety of guest bloggers over the next week or two, until our vast international search comittee secures the services of a permanent media and culture business scrutinizer-in-chief.
It was great fun blogging for you here, and most of you were very patient as I learned the ropes of blogging. As a reporter, I have mixed emotions about blogs: They can be the most insightful, inventive and open areas of discussion and discoure on the web, though some are simply places that indulge the lazier, sloppier aspects of journalism. We’ve always tried to be the former and not the latter. Hopefully, you’ll continue to check back in the coming weeks to keep the ‘bowl honest with your engaged, thoughtful criticism – and, of course, your helpful tips.
So, as they say in the movie business, “That’s a wrap… print it!”
With best regards,
