As the Los Angeles Times and its readership continue to shrink, and owner Tribune Company pulls out of bankruptcy, the paper has consistently pushed to bolster its editorial ranks in its most lucrative section in a company town. Thus Arts & Entertainment Assistant Managing Editor John Corrigan has announced three new staff hires. Congrats to all, who have long been contributing as freelancers when they should have been getting staff benefits.

To: The Staff

From: John Corrigan, Assistant Managing Editor, Arts and Entertainment

I’m excited to announce the hiring of three new reporters, who will play key roles in ramping up our coverage of the film and television industries and giving our readers the best entertainment report in the business.

These new staff writers will help us expand the Envelope’s coverage of the awards season and enable us to put a sharper focus on the important indie film scene.

 What’s more, we’ll once again have an entertainment reporter in New York City, giving us a crucial perch and time advantage to cover news and features coming from the East Coast.

 Please join me in welcoming:

 --Glenn Whipp. A frequent contributor who has covered Hollywood for two decades, Glenn is joining the staff full time as the anchor reporter for the Envelope – with the special mission of making the online version as compelling as the print edition. With his frequent posts, Glenn will ensure readers are up-to-date on all awards-related news and developments, while also contributing first-rate analysis and events coverage. He’ll also serve as front man for The Envelope, conducting videotaped interviews with the key contenders. Glenn will work closely with Envelope editor Elena Howe in adding an array of new features. Glenn starts work today.
