Reporter Rachel Abrams Exiting Variety for New York Times

She'll cover the Wall Street beat for the paper

Rachel Abrams is leaving her position as Variety's financial news editor for the New York Times, Penske Media said on Friday.

“Everyone at Variety has loved working with Rachel and, though it was just three years ago that Rachel entered Variety's intern program, we will miss her and wish Rachel much success at The New York Times,” said PMC Director of Corporate Communications Lauren Gullion.

With Abrams heading to the Times and former Variety film editor Josh Dickey and film reporter Jeff Sneider now working for TheWrap, Variety's film staff consists of trade veterans Marc Graser and Dave McNary, as well as Justin Kroll and Andrew Stewart. The quartet, along with recent New York-based hire Ramin Sehtoodeh, currently reports to Variety editor-in-chief film, Claudia Eller.

NYT did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Abrams, who declined to comment, will cover Wall Street for the paper.
