BALLYS SPORTS NETWORKS going Bankrupt / DOTDASH joins Layoff chorus / AMAZON re-ups with Phoebe Waller-Bridge
Mornin! This is Sean McNulty (connect here on LINKED IN if ya like) and here’s the Hollywood + Media news to know on FRIDAY January 27, 2023.
Where let’s celebrate the end of the first week of Q4 Earnings Season 🥳 with a well deserved poolside Friday morning coffee ☕️ courtesy of Britney Spears (though I kinda hope Sam is the resident barista in that household 😬).
For just a cool $12 Million, the Calabasas house that Britney decided was “way too exposed for her” according to TMZ, can be all yours! Always good to check something like that out after putting down $11.8 Million… but hey everyone has their own process.
AND: Next Saturday Night.
PLUS: A Rest in Peace goes out to NCAA March Madness broadcasting legend Billy Packer, who died at the age of 82 from kidney failure.
ALSO: Kimmel’s 20th Anniversary show last night was a lot of fun, a few clips are up on his YT page, here’s his chat with George (And ‘co-host’ Snoop).
