Michael Schneider

When he’s not scouring Nielsen ratings and cranking out industry scoops, Michael Schneider might be found bantering about TV winners and losers during guest spots on "Entertainment Tonight" or “Access Hollywood.” He hosts the TV Industry podcast “The Spin-Off” on Los Angeles public radio station KCRW, where he's also a regular contributor to "Press Play" and "The Business." Michael also pops up on KROQ's "Kevin & Bean Show" and served as a reality show judge on a Fox Reality Channel show you probably didn't see. The former Chief Content Officer for TV Guide Magazine is currently an Executive Edtior at Indiewire and Editor-at-Large for Variety.
