Podcast #287 – Interview with Emily Longeretta, Senior TV Features Editor at “Variety”

Joined this week by a former guest who in the last 6 months has gotten a new job, moving from “US Weekly” to “Variety” as now their Senior TV Features Editor, Emily Longeretta. We talk about that transition, what’s different in what she’ll cover now, our recap of “This is Us'” final season, what her Bachelor Nation coverage will look like now and how it’ll differ from what she did before, a little talk about Colton that I think a lot of people need to hear (without aggregating it), actors doing podcasts covering shows they were on, and much more. Don’t have much new info on “Bachelorette” filming that ended last Friday. Still another 7 weeks before filming starts, and we’ve been doing this long enough now where you should know by now that I never know when I’ll get the final spoiler to the season. So it’s pointless to give a timeline. Once I hear something concrete from sources, you’ll be the first to know. As always, if you’d like to respond to the interview, please include Emily’s Twitter handle (@emilylongeretta) in your replies. Thanks again to Emily for coming on, congrats on the new gig, and she will definitely be on in the future.
