Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountant.

(a) Dismissal of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

On October 12, 2012, Hollywood Media Corp. (the "Company") dismissed Kaufman, Rossin & Co., P.A. ("Kaufman") as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm, effective as of October 12, 2012. The decision to dismiss Kaufman was recommended and approved jointly by the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") and the Audit Committee of the Board (the "Audit Committee") as part of the Company's continuing effort to reduce costs and expenses while maintaining an equivalent level of audit quality and services.

The reports of Kaufman on the Company's consolidated financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles.

During the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, and through October 12, 2012, there were no (a) disagreements with Kaufman on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to Kaufman's satisfaction, would have caused Kaufman to make reference to the subject matter thereof in connection with its reports for such years; or (b) reportable events, as described under Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

The Company provided Kaufman with a copy of the disclosures it is making in this Current Report on Form 8-K and requested from Kaufman a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission indicating whether Kaufman agrees with such disclosures. A copy of Kaufman's letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission dated October 15, 2012 is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

During the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the subsequent interim period through October 17, 2012, neither the Company nor anyone on the Company's behalf has consulted with Marcum LLP regarding any of the matters or events set forth in Item 304(a)(2)(i) and (ii) of Regulation S-K.
