TheWrap TV editor Daniel Holloway moved over to Variety; TV Guide Magazine chief content officer Michael Schneider is headed back to Variety and, additionally, Indiewire; and now, this morning, TheWrap has announced a successor to Holloway. He is Scott Collins, a longtime TV reporter for the Los Angeles Times:
