Deadline.com, also known as Deadline Hollywood, is an online magazine founded by Nikki Finke. It is part of Jay Penske's PMC.

Publication[edit]

The site is updated several times a day, with the infotainment industry as its focus.[2]

History[edit]

Finke began writing her LA Weekly column Deadline Hollywood in June 2002, and began the Deadline Hollywood Daily (DHD) blog in March 2006 as an online version of her column. In 2009, she sold DHD to Mail.com Media for a reported "seven-figure payday", under an agreement by which she would hire an additional writer but remain the site's editor.[3] In September 2009, the name was changed to Deadline.com and additional cities were added,[4] including New York and London. In November 2013, Finke left Deadline after a year-long disagreement between herself and Penske, who had bought Variety, a competing trade magazine and website.[5]

Staff[edit]

Former Variety reporter Mike Fleming edits Deadline | New York[6] and reporter Tim Adler was brought on to edit Deadline | London,[7] while Finke remains the editor of Deadline | Hollywood. In March 2010, Nellie Andreeva, writer for The Hollywood Reporter was hired to helm the site's television coverage.[8]
