Hollywood Reporter columnist and Riskybiz blogger Anne Thompson is now officially a Variety person. Her new title is Deputy Editor of Variety.com, working with/under Variety.com editor Dana Harris. Her daily/hourly blog will now be called www.riskybusinessblog.com (to differentiate from the riskybizblog she has/had at the Reporter). Her weekly “Risky Business” column will continue in the Variety print edition (most likely debuting Sundays in the weekly edition) .
Nikki Finke reported this about an hour and a half ago. Variety delayed all morning on the official announcement and finally got it up at 1:51 pm. You have to move fast these days…hubba-hubba. (Cynthia Littleton has reportedly also left THR for Variety.)
