Matthew Rosenberg, a reporter at The New York Times, announced on his personal Twitter account on Sunday that he has been hired by Time Inc. as a freelance columnist to write an occasional article for the Hollywood Reporter.
Rosenberg broke into journalism on the East Coast and worked in New York before moving to California to work at The Los Angeles Times and The Boston Globe, where he reported on the tech world, video games and his alma mater, Harvard University. He joined The Times in 2014, working on a variety of projects, including the site’s “Reunion” feature, which runs each year on Facebook, telling the stories of people that you might not have known had they not reconnected. In 2018, Rosenberg was awarded first place for best special report at the California Journalism Awards for his coverage of the deadly wildfires and the life of 27-year-old Ray Smith, a Pismo Beach man who saved 11 people by pulling them to safety, despite already suffering two life-threatening medical conditions.
Long-time Newsweek/Daily Beast reporter Michael Calderone was also recently hired by Time Inc. as a Washington-based, nationally-syndicated political columnist. Former Democratic Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts joined the company as a senior strategic adviser.
