“Janice Min is stepping down as co-president and chief creative officer of The Hollywood Reporter after six years in which the trade came back from the almost-dead to win numerous awards,” LA Observed reports.
The New York Times adds: “Ms. Min, who also oversees the music-focused Billboard magazine, decided in recent weeks not to renew her editing contract for another three-year term. Instead, she will join Eldridge Industries, which controls The Reporter and Billboard, in a new role devising a ‘media-investment strategy,’ she said in an interview on Sunday.”
The Times also notes that Matthew Belloni, Min’s longtime lieutenant at THR, will take over her role. “As editorial director, Mr. Belloni will oversee the publication’s online, video, print and television operations, along with a live-event business,” the story reports.
