MTV Adds 3 Former Grantland Staffers

More great hires.

MTV continues to take advantage of Grantland’s demise. The company’s MTV News division has added Molly Lambert, Mark Lisanti and Holly Anderson; each was previously a staffer for the now-shuttered Grantland.

Lambert will serve as lead music writer, Lisanti as senior director of TV and movies, and Anderson as director of politics and news.

The trio joins MTV News vp editorial director Dan Fierman, who left Grantland last October.

In other MTV News moves, Amy Nicholson has joined as chief film critic. She previously worked for LA Weekly.
