UPDATE: Now The Hollywood Reporter is telling some staff that the trade publication will be going from a daily to a weekly by April. This follows the bosses there telling Hollywood players to advertise in the print edition before the end of the year when the trade would go online only. This was backed up by THR ad staff trying to pressure the studios and networks to agree to help with special issues honoring their respective moguls only before December. Repeatedly, the staff said the issues had to run by December or not at all. Obviously the THR situation is very fluid. We’ll see what happens. Meanwhile, Variety is still planning to put its online content behind a paid wall after the new year.
