Variety Loses Two Players in One Week, McClintock and Harris

Pamela McClintock was in a good mood the other night at a Sundance holiday party at the Soho House, and now I know why. McClintock, with whom I worked at Variety for two years, is one of the paper's senior reporters, a veteran pro who can report, break news, write fast, and get anyone on the phone on any topic. The Hollywood Reporter has hired her away as a senior film reporter, which is a serious loss for Variety, which over the past year has seen vet reporters Michael Fleming defect to Deadline, Tatiana Siegel move to Providence, and Dana Harris move to indieWIRE. Variety has let other talent go in a series of layoffs. Critic Todd McCarthy and party reporter Bill Higgins are now at the Hollywood Reporter; Ben Fritz is at the Los Angeles Times; Daniel Frankel is at The Wrap. Variety has not replaced their lost talent with strong news reporters.

The Hollywood Reporter has hired her away as a senior film reporter, which is a serious loss for Variety, which over the past year has seen vet reporters Michael Fleming defect to Deadline, Tatiana Siegel move to Providence, and Dana Harris move to indieWIRE. Variety has let other talent go in a series of layoffs. Critic Todd McCarthy and party reporter Bill Higgins are now at the Hollywood Reporter; Ben Fritz is at the Los Angeles Times; Daniel Frankel is at The Wrap. Variety has not replaced their lost talent with strong news reporters.

Former Variety.com editor Harris, who had moved into a special projects area, left Variety this week to join indieWIRE as editor-in-chief. McClintock, a grad of the Columbia School of Journalism, worked at Variety for more than ten years, starting out as the paper’s Washington correspondent. She then moved to New York followed by five years in L.A.
