Ex-LAT staff writer named site's West Coast news editor
Quick staffing note: Denise Martin, staff writer at the Los Angeles Times and former television reporter at Variety, has been named West Coast news editor at TVGuide.com.
Joe Flint congratulated her via Twitter thusly:
Congrats to @denisemartin, new West Coast News Editor for TVGuide.com. Waiting for the first all "Glee" and Parks & Rec pages.
Last month, Open Gate Capital, which owns TV Guide, struck a deal with Lionsgate, which owns the website, to run content from the magazine on the eponymous site, bringing to an end a rather confusing arrangement.
The magazine and site split in 2008 when Macrovision sold each in separate deals.
