Patrick Kevin Day, the deputy editor of The Hollywood Reporter's website, is leaving after just two months to return to the Los Angeles Times as a senior web producer. A more junior web producer has also left THR.com, according to The Wrap. Reporter Lucas Shaw ties it to the departure in September of THR.com general manager Alex Boyce. "These are all big losses for THR, which has boasted strong traffic numbers since Min stewarded a relaunch of the website," Shaw says.
