Hollywood Reporter Bolsters Marketing, Editorial Departments

It feels a little bit this week like the inauguration of Janice Min’s second two-year term. Having re-branded and relaunched a struggling Hollywood trade publication as a consumer weekly magazine and website, Min is seemingly gearing up for the next big operational step forward towards (hopefully) break-even.

On Tuesday, THR announced the appointment of a VP of marketing, Anna Magzanyan. She was previously with Clear Channel, where she handled iHeartRadio, and the LA Times Media Group. Today, the first of several waves of editorial hires is being heralded.

The biggest and in some ways most surprising move is that news editor Matthew Belloni (pictured) has been promoted to the same post as Owen Phillips. The two will share the title of executive editor and work alongside a group that now includes deputy editorial director  Mark Miller. He reports directly to Min and comes over from the downsizing Daily Beast/Newsweek. Alison Brower, most recently the interim editor-in-chief of Seventeen, has been appointed THR special projects editor.

At press time, Miller had yet to update his Twitter profile and handle. But this being Hollywood, the moniker of @markmillerbeast may be one he wants to keep… and try to west-coast live up to.
