Dave Karger Leaves Entertainment Weekly for Fandango

Dave Karger, perhaps the most widely-known awards-season journalist (yes), has left his longtime perch at Entertainment Weekly for a newly-created position at movie-ticket vendor Fandango, reports the Times. Mr. Karger, who frequently does media hits in the (roughly) November to February “Oscar season,” will report to an integrated marketing executive, fitting given the dearth of editorial employees at Fandango, which is only now broadening its online offerings in hopes of attracting further advertisers.

It’s not all bad news for the Time Inc. entertainment magazine–they recently gained longtime L.A. Times entertainment reporter Geoff Boucher, prompting Nikki Finke to announce she’d never tried to hire him. Okay!
