Ed. note: This column will be about entertainment, the law, and the intersection of those two things. If you know of a law-related personality you’d like to see interviewed here, please contact us.
Staci here. Are you interested in entertainment law, but don’t have a law license? Or even better, are you interested in entertainment law, but you have no legal training? Not to worry, my friend, because there’s still hope for you in the world of legal journalism.
This week, Mr. Legal Entertainment was able to chat with a leading legal journalist who covers the world of entertainment: Eriq Gardner, senior editor at the Hollywood Reporter and writer at the site’s Hollywood, Esq. blog. Garner gave us the scoop on what really goes into gathering background information and writing stories about our favorite celebrities’ latest legal affairs for the site….
Mr. Legal Entertainment is Sam E. Goldberg. He’s worked for the Howard Stern Show, where he appeared on the weekly intern show and spoke about gossip, and Maxim Radio, where he did man-on-the-street interviews and spoke regularly with the hosts of the show. Sam previously launched the S&M radio show (S&M stood for Sam and Michelle), and spoke about pop culture, with celebrity appearances such as Kim Kardashian. When he got kicked off the air on college radio, the show was picked up by Idobi radio, an iTunes radio show. Sam is a recent law school graduate. His full biography is available at Mr. Law School.
