I’m told Joe Adalian is leaving Variety to become a columnist and deputy editor at TV Week. His focus will be analytical stories and bigger picture breaking news. He’ll also launch a blog for TVWeek.com during the summer. Adalian has covered network television for Variety since June 1998. (I’m pretty sure Joe hasn’t forgiven me for scooping him on that Kevin Reilly out, Ben Silverman in, story at NBC which he initially wrote was “false”.)
