THR, KFWB in business together


The Hollywood Reporter and CBS Radio's KFWB-AM Los Angeles have teamed to produce "The THR Hollywood Business Report," a weekday feature that provides an insider's perspective on the business of entertainment.

"The THR Hollywood Business Report" consists of one-minute segments covering breaking news and updates. It airs at 5:37 a.m. and 7:37 a.m. weekdays.

Produced by KFWB and delivered by THR reporters and editors, the report will make KFWB listeners among the first to hear the morning's latest entertainment news.

Deputy film editor Carl DiOrio is the lead journalist for The Reporter on the initiative.

"This partnership is just one more example of how the new Reporter is looking to serve the entertainment industry," THR editor Elizabeth Guider said.

Said KFWB GM Dan Weiner: "Partnering with THR to bring daily updates and breaking entertainment news to our listeners furthers our goal to deliver what our audience and L.A. want most." (partialdiff)
