He helped launch Puck in Sept. 2021, writes a twice-weekly newsletter called “What I’m Hearing” about the entertainment industry, and hosts a popular podcast, “The Town,” for The Ringer Podcast Network. As editorial director of The Hollywood Reporter from 2016 to 2020, Belloni was responsible for editorial content and initiatives at the iconic entertainment media outlet.

Belloni spearheaded THR’s move into audio and video with its roundtable series, “Close Up With The Hollywood Reporter,” which was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award, and “Angelyne,” a scripted adaptation of a THR article. Belloni also appears regularly as an analyst on NBC, CBS, CNN, CNBC, NPR’s The Business and The Bill Simmons Podcast. Before joining THR, Belloni was an attorney at an entertainment law firm in Los Angeles, representing actors, filmmakers and media companies in disputes and litigation.
