Chris Krewson has been tapped editor of Variety.com, overseeing all editorial content for the website and contributing to its vision and content strategy.
Krewson, currently executive online editor at the Philadelphia Inquirer, will report to Variety group editor Tim Gray.
“We considered a lot of great people, but Chris was everybody’s favorite. With his innovative ideas, as well as his people skills, Chris will be a major asset as our website expands and improves. And since readers have indicated they want information in both print and online, Chris will be able to help us coordinate and differentiate the two media since he has a strong background in both,” Gray said.
He earned a B.A. in journalism from Penn State U. and was also online editor at Allentown’s the Morning Call and Mcall.com.
When Krewson begins in February, current Variety.com editor Dana Harris will segue to a new position as editor of Variety’s paid information product.
As previously reported, Leo Wolinsky will begin Monday as editor of Daily Variety, also reporting to Gray. Both moves are part of an ongoing reorg as Variety and Variety.com build on their coverage.
