Starting Monday, Blake will begin the next chapter of her career. Just in time for the 58th Grammys, she has been hired by Mashable to serve as the site’s music reporter.

Blake will report to entertainment editor Josh Dickey, whose immediate staff also includes Saba Hamedy, who covers digital entertainment, and senior TV reporter Sandra Gonzalez. The Mashable L.A. crew, which also encompasses some tech and video personnel, works out of a new office in Culver City opened last summer.

As an editor at EW, Blake oversaw daily news coverage and also contributed to the outlet’s SiriusXM channel. A rep tells FishbowlNY that the latest traffic figures for Mashable are in the range of 45 million unique monthly visitors and 27 million followers across all social platforms.
