Gina McIntyre, managing editor for features at the Hollywood Reporter, is moving to the L.A. Times as an assistant entertainment editor. The memo on that follows. And as we noted Friday, Melissa Grego is switching to THR from TV Week, where she was managing editor. Looks like her new job will be editor of TheHollywoodReporter.com, starting Oct. 8. I'm told she may keep doing a version of her Mel's Diner blog over there.
* More staff info: Anne Thompson at Variety has details.

To the Staff:
From: Betsy Sharkey, Entertainment Editor
We are pleased to announce that Gina McIntyre will join the Calendar staff later this month as an assistant entertainment editor, replacing Rene Lynch, who has moved to the web.
Gina brings an extensive background in film and television journalism to her new post and will help shape our report in those areas, as well as pop music. She comes to us from the Hollywood Reporter, where her duties as managing editor/features included overseeing the "Next Generation" report, which spotlights the hottest young executives in film, television and new media; the Cannes Film Festival special issue; and the Indie Power survey.. During her seven years at the Reporter, Gina also was part of the writing/reporting team that covered most of the major film festivals.
Early in her career, Gina edited "The 'X-Files' Official Magazine," which should make her our go-to person for any conspiracy theories.
Gina officially takes up her new post on Oct. 29 and will report to me.
