The End Of An Era

Daily Variety Jay Penske

It was to be expected! It’s official, Daily Variety, the “bible of showbiz” will not be published daily. The trade publication was sold last year to Jay Penske for only $25 million. Daily Variety is following in the footsteps of Hollywood Reporter. The news will be online and a magazine will be printed once a week. Starting March 1st, Variety readers can look forward to the debut of a paywall-free website.

Perhaps digital magazines will now start receiving the proper attention and respect from Film and TV studios, as well as record companies.
