While Variety TV editor MIchael Schneider was able to resist the approaches of The Hollywood Reporter, he could not say no to TV Guide, which he collected in his room when he was a kid. He's going there as their new LA Bureau Chief.

Thus Variety loses another valuable player. Luckily, deputy editor Cynthia Littleton, who is running the daily with Brian Cochrane under editor Tim Gray, knows TV and will carry on. And ace TV columnist/critic Brian Lowry is still on board. But Schneider is a huge loss.

The paper just bolstered their film department (which lost Michael Fleming, Tatiana Siegel and Pamela McClintock in the past year) with The Wrap's Josh Dickey, who started this week. Now they'll have to do something about TV as well.
