It’s at the popular tabloid that he developed a taste for gossip, and the news behind the news.
He has been doing gossip since 1998, when he started South Florida Insider at the Sun-Sentinel. Three years later, he moved to the gossip big leagues at Star magazine first then the National Enquirer. In 2004, He returned to mainstream and started Page Two at the Post, leaving March 2011 to start Gossip Extra.
