Ankler On the Air is joined by The Hollywood Reporter’s fearless feature writer Seth Abramovitch. We talk about his rise up from the early internet snark-space of Gawker’s infamous Defamer blog to becoming a pillar of the entertainment establishment as a reporter for THR. We look at what its like covering Hollywood then and now, and discuss the strange world of YouTube by way of Seth’s recent profile of internet enfant terrible Logan Paul. All brought to you by the delicious people at Mrs. Fields!

This week Ankler on the Air chews over Tinseltown’s latest foibles and follies with special guest panelists Katey Rich of Vanity Fair and Seth Abramovitch of The Hollywood Reporter.
