Janice Min: THR Can Set Agenda Without ‘Covering Picky Little Details’


The Wrap’s Sharon Waxman just interviewed her new rival, Janice Min, who this week was announced to be the next editor of beleaguered The Hollywood Reporter. One of Waxman’s first questions, clearly, was whether the former Us Weekly editor was going to make the trade (of which she admits she was not a regular reader) more commercial or consumer-oriented. Min says she won’t. “It does a solid job of covering the bread and butter of ‘This person moving there,’ ‘This release date pushed back,’” she says. “I think the opportunity with THR is to help set the news agenda for the industry instead of covering picky little details. I think you can capitalize on its history to have a powerful influential platform and voice.” Here’s the answer to the next important question we had: “I will leave the Lindsay Lohan drama to Us Weekly.”
