Without explanation, Nikki Finke has stopped posting updates on her website. The founder of, Finke has been engaged a protracted battle with Jay Penske, who bought the site in 2009. The fiery entertainment industry columnist resumed blogging in June without a staff and occasionally missed a day or two of posts, but she never missed updating her weekend box-office report, which she usually posted before any other entertainment-related website. She has not done so for the past two weeks, however. Published reports indicated that she has stopped updating the site while she and Penske attempt to agree on a settlement. Buzzfeed reported on Friday that she has agreed to shut down the site, but the New York Times, citing other sources, reported that she could keep it open if she avoided writing about Hollywood and made it a broader site about other matters such as politics or Los Angeles.
