IndieWire grabs new editor in chief from Variety

Dana Harris has been at Variety for nearly 11 years. She'll remain in Los Angeles as editor-in-chief of IndieWire. From her email:

Excited only begins to cover it; I am really looking forward to building on what co-founder and former EIC Eugene Hernandez began almost 15 years ago.

Another journalist jumps from the trades to online-only.
