TV columnist Lisa de Moraes joins Nikki Finke’s Deadline Hollywood

I guessed in March that Lisa de Moraes would join Entertainment Weekly after leaving the Washington Post. I was wrong. She’s just been named TV columnist at Deadline Hollywood.
Deadline editor Nikki Finke says: “I can’t remember when I didn’t read Lisa. Her columns cover everything from morning shows to reality programs to executive suites with exclusive news and irreverence. I’m thrilled she decided to make Deadline her Hollywood home.”

The Post lost de Moraes a few weeks ago because it wouldn’t let her cover TV from Los Angeles, where her husband has lived for years.
