Janice Min to Lead Hollywood Reporter as Editorial Director
Former Us Weekly editor to oversee Hollywood trade publication.
Amidst reports that new owner e5 Global Media is looking to transition The Hollywood Reporter from a weekday trade paper into a glossy weekly, the company announced Wednesday that it has named former Us Weekly editor Janice Min as editorial director.
Min [pictured] left Us Weekly last year after her contract with owner Jan Wenner ended. During her time there as editor-in-chiefâa position she held since 2003âthe magazine more than doubled its circulation and won several awards. Min âdramatically transformed the landscape of entertainment journalism,â said e5 Global Media CEO Richard Beckman, âand she is perfectly suited to lead The Hollywood Reporterâs business-to-influencer coverage of the global entertainment industry.â
When asked by Hollywood news site The Wrap if Minâs hiring, along with the appointment of former OK! publisher Lori Burgess as publisher, signals a shift for THR to more consumer celebrity coverage, Beckman said it is his intention to âmake this the leading vehicle covering the entertainment industry. Yes, celebrity is part of that, but itâs not the fundamental charter here."
Reporting to Min will be THR editor Elizabeth Guider.
