Was Finke offered THR gigt?

NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT: After Richard Beckman, CEO of The Hollywood Reporter's parent company e5 Global Media, denied Nikki Finke’s claim that she’d been made a “very lucrative” offer to become Editor-in-Chief gig of the trade, Finke fired back: “Huh? I've gone over my notes, and let me reaffirm that the offer was real and detailed and made to me by one of Beckman's bosses during a phone conversation on the night of January 13th. It consisted of: $450,000 annual salary for becoming editor-in-chief of The Hollywood Reporter. Plus a $1 million Malibu home which, I was told, ‘you can keep whether you stay 5 minutes or 5 years’ in the job. (Why this? Because I had said that some day I want to buy a Malibu condo with an ocean view.) Plus a sum ‘roughly estimated’ at $650,000 a year for my share of several cable TV deals which e5 anticipated making for THR. And so on. Other people know about this offer, too.” (3/29a)
