Matthew Belloni Named Exec Editor of Hollywood Reporter, Alison Brower Joins Team

We have more Hollywood Reporter news to pass along. Matthew Belloni, who has been with THR since 2006, has been promoted from news director to executive editor, and Alison Brower, former interim editor-in-chief of Seventeen, is joining THR as special projects editor.

Janice Min, deputy editor of THR, said Belloni was more than qualified to take for the exec editor position. ”In addition to his unparalleled newsroom instincts, Matt has helped steer the news coverage of THR and built the industry’s most eagerly watched blog on the intersection between law and entertainment,” said Min, in a statement. “He’s helped move THR forward into uncharted territory, and will continue to do so in new role as executive editor.”

Brower has held a variety of high-level editorial positions during her career, including executive editor of Redbook and special projects editor at O, The Oprah Magazine.

“Alison has one of the best eyes in the business for creating content that connects readers to publications with special issues, events and partnerships,” Min said. “Her ability to coordinate multiple factors that elevate both editorial and the brand will be key to THR.”
