Entertainment Weekly is trading NYC for La La Land. The celebrity-obsessed publication announced that it plans to leave Time Inc.’s corporate offices across from 1 World Trade Center at 225 Liberty Street and move operations to Los Angeles.

The magazine will move into People Magazine’s West Coast offices in March, according to Crain’s.

The move comes as Time looks to cut costs. It will relocate 40 to 45 of the publication’s 66 New York staffers to California, a spokesperson for the publication said. The move will also give EW employees access to Time Inc.’s new studio where they will produce original video programs.

“It makes a lot of sense in that covering TV is primarily what we do,” an EW staff member told Crain’s. “When the magazine was started, you couldn’t conceive of having a national publication based anywhere but New York.” [Crain’s] – Christopher Cameron
