Digital pro Spangler joins Variety

Journalist named New York digital editor

Award-winning business and technology journalist Todd Spangler is joining Variety as the New York digital editor, covering digital media with particular emphasis on the intersection of technology and television.

Spangler was most recently the technology editor for Multichannel News, a leading publication covering the cable industry. Prior to that, he was an editor and writer with several technology publications, including PC Magazine, Interactive Week and Baseline. During his tenure as a senior editor at Baseline, the magazine won three Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Awards in 2005-2006. Spangler has two decades of journalism experience and holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Northwestern U’s Medill School of Journalism.

“Todd’s stellar coverage of the new media sector speaks for itself,” said Andrew Wallenstein, Variety’s editor-in-chief/digital. “Adding him to an already strong stable of Variety journalists only deepens our commitment to the digital vertical on our new website and in our weekly magazine.”

Spangler is the latest addition to Variety’s editorial roster, following Penske Media Corp.’s February 26 announcement of major changes at the outlet, including three new editors-in-chief: Claudia Eller, Cynthia Littleton and Wallenstein, covering film, television and digital/new media respectively. Spangler will report to Wallenstein. Former Ad Age editor Brian Steinberg also recently boarded Variety as its new television editor, and longtime Variety editor Steven Gaydos was upped to vice president and executive editor.

PMC unveiled a brand new Variety.com, sans paywall, on March 1, and announced plans to return Variety to a weekly format beginning March 26, with an additional 100-plus special features and issues a year.
