Janice Min Shares How to Climb The Masthead

This powerhouse editor has five successful mag stints under her belt, and The Hollywood Reporter marks a successful number six. So what does Janice Min believe is the key to success?

“A lot of it is making yourself indispensable to somebody or the organization. Honestly, it has nothing to do with titles or where you are. Everyone should try to find ways to be distinctive and valuable in an office and without being annoying,” she said in our So, What Do You Do? interview.

And she’s got some advice for those ambitious Millennials who often think a top executive position is their birthright.

“When [interviewees] say ‘I want to be an editor-in-chief one day,’ it’s such a turn-off. Immediately in your mind you’re like, ‘OK, this is someone who feels entitled who is not goig to want to work very hard.’”

Wrap’s Waxman: ‘Is Anyone Counting What They’re Spending Over There?’

Money
On the (somewhat stale) news that The Hollywood Reporter offered Page Six editor Richard Johnson $1 million to move to THR, The Wrap‘s Sharon Waxman boggles.

“A million bucks? Is anyone counting what they are spending over there? Finkelstein’s new empire is throwing millions around like they’ve figured out how to make them back,” she wrote yesterday.

She takes a couple stabs at what other THR execs are bringing in: If her numbers are at all accurate, THR’s a great place to be the boss.

  • Group publisher Richard Beckman and THR editorial director Janice Min: “near $1 million each, at least.”
  • Associate publisher Michaela Apruzzese: “undoubtedly” making $300,000.
  • Ad sales execs: $200,000, with promises of six-figure bonuses.
  • “Numerous” senior executives are making “high-six-figure” salaries.
  • And, Waxman reports, the publication is spending $2 million on a redesign.

This is a “high-risk” strategy, says Waxman. To us, it certainly looks like the publication is spending money like it’s free–but if it can turn itself around, it’s worth it, right?
