Elizabeth Guider Leaves Editor Post At The Hollywood Reporter

Although the writing has been on the wall for months, Elizabeth Guider made it official today as she stepped down as editor from The Hollywood Reporter

Guider’s fate was sealed back in January with THR‘s takeover by e5 Global Media CEO Richard Beckman and subsequent appointment of former Us Weekly editor Janice Min as new editorial director.  The magazine is heading in a new direction and will depart from the five-times-a-week publication to print one weekly magazine.

According to THR‘s announcement, Guider stepped down for “personal family issues” and cited a “desire to finish a book.”  Guider joined The Hollywood Reporter in 2007 following a stop as executive editor of Variety. 

During Guider’s tenure, THR launched a daily New York edition with morning distribution to New York subscribers as well as communities in major East Coast cities.  THR‘s Premier Edition is available on Manhattan newsstands each weekday morning.  Guider will continue to contribute to the magazine on a freelance basis.
