The Turnaround Artist: Janice Min on Magazines and #Metoo

Here's The Thing with Alec Baldwin show

Summary: <p>Daughter of a science professor and an IRS agent, a double-graduate of Columbia herself, Janice Min turned her talents in the early 2000s to the glossy magazine <em>Us Weekly</em>. Celebrity journalism has never been the same. In its pages, she revolutionized pop culture as well as publishing, slaking a thirst Americans didn't know they had for J-Lo, the Kardashians, and <em>The Bachelor</em>. Min paid legions of paparazzi and helped create the fun, intimate, gossipy tone that characterizes web content today. Then she moved to the moribund <em>Hollywood Reporter</em> and worked the same magic but in a different key, making it the go-to magazine for serious coverage of show business.</p> <p>Once Alec and she cover all that history, they turn to #metoo, Woody Allen, and how to create lasting change in Hollywood. Min's take is fascinating and genuinely surprising: think Frances McDormand with a dash of Deneuve.</p>
