Sharon Waxman swept through New York last week looking for a TV editor for her site “The Wrap” and it looks like she’s plucked TVWeek editor Josef Adalian for the job.
Launched earlier this year by Waxman, the former Hollywood correspondent for the New York Times, “The Wrap” is a mix of original reporting, exclusive contributions and pick-ups from other sites — think, a Huffington Post for entertainment.
Adalian was recently named editor of TVWEEK.com. He’d been deputy editor of the publication (which is now online only) and prior to that had been at Variety, covering television there for a decade.
In a release, Waxman says, “Joe is one of the most knowledgeable, authoritative journalists covering television. His reporting is a must-read for anyone serious about following this part of the industry. We are delighted to have his voice contribute to the A-team we are building at TheWrap.”
Adalian begins this summer based out of Los Angeles.
