Ex-Page Six, Hollywood Life Editor Tapped by Hearst for New Site

Corynne Steindler to manage TheSurvivorsClub.org

Here's a job change worth noting: Corynne Steindler, former gossip columnist for Page Six and senior editor of Bonnie Fuller’s HollywoodLife.com, has a new gig and an entirely different beat.

Steindler is now the editorial director of TheSurvivorsClub.org, a site that was launched this week by Hearst Magazines’ digital media division.

The site bills itself as “an online resource center and community that helps people survive and thrive in the face of adversity including health, financial and family challenges” – a far cry from the kind of celebrity-soaked coverage Steindler survived in her previous posts.

Steindler, who jumped from the New York Post gossip sheet to Hollywood Life last year, left HL earlier this summer to work on Hearst's new digital project.

The site was founded by former "Good Morning America" producer Ben Sherwood, author of a book by the same name.

Chuck Cordray, Hearst’s digital SVP and GM, says the company is as “excited about the business potential it represents [as] its socially conscious core mission.”
