Time Inc. finds an executive producer, video and more...
JJ Miller has been named executive producer, video, for Time Inc.’s People and Entertainment Weekly. In this newly created role, Miller will oversee all aspects of People and EW video programming across their digital platforms, and she will develop TV and other brand extensions, reporting directly to Jess Cagle, Editorial Director of People and EW.
“In October, People.com generated nearly 23 million video streams, a Time Inc. record,” said Rich Battista, President, People and Entertainment Weekly. “With online video a key part of the People and EW growth strategies, we are investing heavily in the medium—with nearly 50 video series in production or in development across both brands.”
