Matt Grobar has been promoted to Senior Film Reporter. After serving five years as assistant editor at AwardsLine, Grobar joined the editor desk in 2021 before becoming a full-time reporter on our film staff. He oversees awards video series The Process and a burgeoning stand-up comedy beat, and is based in Los Angeles.

Katie Campione is now covering the labor beat for Deadline. Campione, who joined Deadline in 2022, was regularly on the picket lines during last year’s writers and actors strikes and she will now build on this with more labor coverage as we head into IATSE negotiations. TV reporter Campione also oversees ratings and assists with profiles and recaps of shows such as The Bachelor.

In the television department, she works alongside Rosy Cordero, who last year was promoted to Associate Editor, TV.

Natalie Sitek has been upped to Social Media Manager. She joined Deadline in February 2022 and plays an important role in our ongoing red carpet coverage, awards shows and premieres.

Destiny Jackson is now an Awards Writer. Since joining in 2022, Jackson has been an invaluable addition to the Awardsline team by contributing film and TV stories during awards season.

“Deadline continues to grow, and that is fueled by a new generation of reporters and editors who now give the two of us a run for our money,” said co-editors in chief Mike Fleming Jr. and Nellie Andreeva. “Today’s promotions recognize some of our most senior staffers who are taking on additional responsibilities as our management structure evolves, along with the up and comers whose growth curves are remarkable to watch and make us more bullish than ever about the future of this great brand.”
