Former Defamer Editors Joining Movieline

Posted Apr 15, 2009

In late February, Defamer.com was rolled into Gawker.com.  This put Seth Abramovitch, Kyle Buchanan and S.T. VanAirsdale out of a job.  However they were given another opportunity in the form of blogging once again for Movieline.com.  Movieline was originally a magazine that started in 1989 and was stringing along for a couple of years.  Jane Fonda was on the first cover of the magazine.  Jay Penske, the son of automobile racing team and Penske Corporation founder Roger Penske set-up the revamping of Movieline.  Movieline will be part of Mail.com, the company that was relaunched by Penske and raised $35 million in funding last year.
