The Return of Nikki Finke

Nikki Finke

After taking a three-year break, Nikki Finke returns to the news business as a Senior Columnist at Mediaite, starting in January 2017. Due to a non-compete agreement with Penske Media, owner of Deadline Hollywood, Finke is unable to report on the entertainment industry. Penske views her return to journalism as a violation to this non-compete and is threatening to sue. However, Finke found a loophole and plans to cover everything expect the entertainment industry, which will be a tough task for her to carry out. Finke’s work has appeared in almost every major news publication, including the New York Times, Vanity Fair, Esquire, and The Washington Post. View profile ↓
