Us‘s Janie Min: “I don’t think magazines are in my future.”

us_weekly_min2.jpgYesterday, we learned that celebrity editor-in-chief Janice Min was stepping down from the top slot at Us Weekly. The question on everyone’s mind is: what’s next for Min?

WWD scored an interview with Min and, although they couldn’t get her to give a hint about whether she has a new gig lined up, the editor did admit she doesn’t think she’ll be staying in magazines.

“I don’t think magazines are in my future,” Min told WWD. “I would be surprised if I worked for another magazine. Us Weekly is the ultimate magazine experience. And I now have the freedom to talk to people and figure out what I’ll do next.”

WWD also has some ideas about who might be in line to replace Min, if Michael Steele, who will step into her role for the time being, takes the editor-in-chief role on only temporarily. Some names mentioned include Us‘s Los Angeles bureau chief Melanie Bromley and the magazine’s news director Lara Cohen, rival pub Life & Style‘s editor-in-chief Dan Wakeford and In Touch eic Richard Spencer; People magazine’s Peter Castro, former editor-in-chief of British OK! Nicola McCarthy and ex-Min staffer Colleen Curtis.
