Pssst. The rumors are true: The Hollywood Reporter is 70. The
entertainment industry’s first daily trade newspaper becomes a
septuagenarian Tuesday.



Launched in 1930 by William R. ‘Bill’ Wilkerson, the Reporter has
detailed Hollywood’s rich and colorful history since.

a staff of 300 with bureaus around the world. The Reporter, a VNU
corporate sibling of E&P, publishes as many as 150 special issues
annually; launched the entertainment trade news industry’s first Web
site (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com) in 1996; has created an e-mail
edition; and hosts numerous conferences and award shows.
