Alison Brower Rejoins The Hollywood Reporter

When Hearst Magazines stated earlier today that exiting EIC Alison Brower was departing for California, they left out one crucial detail. She is headed there so she can work once again for The Hollywood Reporter.

AlisonBrowerTHRPicFrom today’s Janice Min memo:

Dear Staff:

I am thrilled to announce the return of the wonderful Alison Brower to The Hollywood Reporter as deputy editorial director. Alison comes back to us from Hearst, where she served as editor-in-chief of Dr. Oz’s enormously successful lifestyle publication, Dr. Oz The Good Life. The first issue of Dr. Oz The Good Life sold out on newsstands and had to go back to press for reprint. Today, thanks to Alison’s impressive work, the magazine was announced as an official launch.

Prior to her work with Dr. Oz, Alison was special projects editor at The Hollywood Reporter, where she managed and edited feature packages, including the Cannes issue (one of our ASME-nominated issues of 2013) and Comedy issue. Alison also conceived and developed related web and video content for THR. Prior to her tenure at THR, Alison was the interim editor-in-chief of Seventeen.

PROMOTIONS

- Jeanie Pyun, features director (pictured, right): “While Jeanie is not new to THR - she came to us in January 2012 for what was supposed to be a temporary stint – we can now make it official. With her calm, unflappable demeanor and her skillful editing of stories, lists, packages and generally anything that’s thrown at her, Jeanie has quickly become indispensable in producing the magazine.”

- Lacey Rose, television editor: “Lacey joined The Hollywood Reporter as a senior TV writer in February 2011, coming from Forbes, and since then has become one of the top television writers in the business, and certainly the most prolific.”
