Dan Fienberg, referred to around these parts alternately as "my buddy Fienberg," "my evil twin Fienberg," "my bastard son Fienberg," "Mini-Me," etc., has left Zap2It and is now executive editor and all-around TV guy for a new entertainment news site called HitFix, which just launched in beta today. Among the other talent assembled: Drew McWeeny (aka Moriarty from Ain't It Cool?) as movie guy and Melinda Newman from Billboard as music gal.
Dan has migrated his Check the Fien Print blog and has been a posting fool of late, with thoughts on how the SAG Award nominations are the last time any awards show can ever snub "The Wire," and his desire (shared by me) that the phrase "ducking the shoe" work its way into our cultural lexicon.
Dan's a great writer and all-around swell guy; basically, a thinner, hairier version of your host. So give HitFix some clicks, eh?
