Steindler is the third Page Six staffer to leave in the past few months, following the lead of Paula Froelich and Bill Hoffman, who departed in July.
HollywoodLife confirmed Steindler’s move this afternoon. “We are privileged to welcome such a seasoned reporter to HollywoodLife.com,” Fuller said. “With terrific experience breaking celebrity news, Corynne’s addition is a significant advantage to our strong and growing editorial team.”
Fuller has been recruiting some top gossip talent to her site, recently snagging TMZ’s Will Lee to serve as executive editor.
