“TMZ . . . is accustomed to beating other media outlets on the stories that shape the
entertainment world.” “TMZ’s specialty is unvarnished celebrity coverage”
– The New York Times
“The main reason is that TMZ, under Harvey Levin, has a track record of getting these stories right. It
was TMZ that first reported Michael Jackson's death, and the questions about drugs supplied by his
doctor; Mel Gibson's drunken, anti-Semitic rant, and the racist monologue by Michael Richards. You do
enough stories like that, other journalists take notice.”
– The Washington Post
“In this past decade, whereas TMZ has turned the “gotcha” into an art form, other media have even got
in the game: from leaked images out of Abu Ghraib to Britney Spears going commando, the badly
behaved and just-plain-stupid suddenly were forced to wonder, “Who is watching me?””
We’ll just say this bluntly because that’s how we roll—“TMZ” is the fastest growing entertainment news brand because it’s the only show that informs and entertains viewers. In addition, “TMZ”’s humorous, unique, tell-it-like-it-is style of delivering celebrity news is redefining the genre and forcing the old standard entertainment news outlets to retool and attempt to play catch-up with TMZ.
TMZ is responsible for breaking some of the biggest entertainment news stories. People around the world turn to TMZ for its speed and accuracy because rather than doing what other celebrity shows do, the show and the website are confident and consistent in their unique approach to covering celebrities.
“TMZ” is produced in Hollywood by Harvey Levin Productions, Inc., and paraMedia, inc., in association with Telepictures Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. Harvey Levin and Jim Paratore serve as the show’s Executive Producers with Evan Rosenblum and Charles Latibeaudiere as Co-Executive Producers.
