Veteran television industry reporter Steve Brennan, 57, a longtime force on the international TV and syndication beats, died July 2 following a year-long battle against cancer.
The Hollywood Reporter, Brennan’s home for the past two decades, has a complete obituary on its website. Dozens of industry types share their memories of Brennan in the comments section of the story.
Meanwhile, colleague Cynthia Littleton, now at Daily Variety, offers her thoughts on Brennan at her blog, which also contains several tributes to Brennan in the comments section.
"Steve often dazzled with his colorful style, but his insights into the biz were even brighter," Reporter editor Elizabeth Guider said of Brennan. "He was one of a disappearing breed of old-school newsmen who had an unshakable work ethic, a global Rolodex and a wonderfully wry but affectionate view of the business of entertainment and the people engaged in it."
