Ron Grover jumps to Reuters *

The longtime Business Week presence in Hollywood is leaving Bloomberg BusinessWeek to be the Los Angeles bureau chief for Reuters. The move is expected to be announced later today, but was broken by Talking Biz News.

While Reuters has been hiring a number of big-name business journalists in the past year, this move is an important hire in that Reuters now has a deal for much of its Hollywood business coverage with The Wrap. Grover’s hiring means that the news service would become more aggressive in covering that beat.

* I'm now told the official announcement won't be made until Monday.
