The Hollywood Reporter (THR) is a multi-platform American digital and print magazine founded in 1930 and focusing on the Hollywood film industry, television, and entertainment industries, as well as Hollywood’s intersection with fashion, finance, law, technology, lifestyle, and politics.
THR was founded in 1930 by William R. “Billy” Wilkerson as Hollywood’s first daily entertainment trade newspaper. The first edition appeared on September 3, 1930, and featured Wilkerson’s front-page “Tradeviews” column, which became influential. Wilkerson ran the THR until his death in September 1962.
From the late 1930s, Wilkerson used THR to push the view that the industry was a communist stronghold. In particular, he opposed the screenplay writers’ trade union, the Screen Writers Guild, which he called the “Red Beachhead.” The column contained the first industry names, including Dalton Trumbo and Howard Koch, on what became the Hollywood blacklist, known as “Billy’s list.” Read more at Wikipedia.
