Paging all "Ausholes."
Influential TV blogger, columnist, and Smurfs collector Michael Ausiello (whom NYTV profiled back in November) is leaving his longtime home at TV Guide for a new writing gig at Entertainment Weekly, where he will pen a weekly column and contribute to EW.com.
A few weeks ago, Macrovision Solutions Corporation competed a multibillion dollar takeover of Gemstar-TV Guide. Since then, Macrovision executives have reportedly been trying to sell the magazine while holding onto TVGuide.com—where Mr. Ausiello has established himself in recent years as a major force in the entertainment industry.
According to the press release, Mr. Ausiello will start at EW on July, 2.
