Block will work on nonfiction entertainment biz book

Television Week editor Alex Ben Block is ankling the weekly trade mag, turning his attention to working on a new book project.

Reached late Thursday, Block declined to elaborate on the book but said it would be a nonfiction take on the entertainment biz.

Block said he’s also in talks with Television Week about continuing his column with the Crain-owned pub, as well as serving in a variety of consulting roles.

He also was editor at the Hollywood Reporter for seven years, as well as city editor at the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, a columnist at the Detroit News and associate editor at Forbes magazine.

He also authored the book “Outfoxed: The Inside Story of America’s Fourth Network,” which looked at the birth of the Fox web.
