A prominent weekly entertainment magazine is relocating from New York, where it has been headquartered for almost 30 years, to Los Angeles.
Variety reports that Entertainment Weekly, which has 66 staffers in New York, will make the move by next March. The publication expects between 40 and 50 staffers to relocate.
Said EW editor-in-chief Henry Goldblatt, who is among those who will be making the move: “As we re-imagine and re-invent our brand it makes sense to do it in the entertainment capital.”
Since being founded in 1990, Entertainment Weekly has been headquartered in New York City. It will keep a presence in Manhattan, the report notes, including editorial, sales and marketing staff.
“In L.A. Goldblatt will join Time Inc. Entertainment Group Senior Vice President Ellie Duque,” Variety notes. “Together they will work on growing the magazine’s advertiser base.”
