People magazine; MTV; US Weekly; HollywoodLife. That’s the career progression of Carolyn Davis (pictured) who, effective July 15, is the managing editor for Bonnie Fuller’s celebrity news site.
To go along with this hire, HL also promoted senior reporter Emily Longeretta to news editor. From this week’s announcement:
“Carolyn’s in-depth knowledge and experience in the celebrity/entertainment and pop culture world will be a tremendous asset to HollywoodLife, as well as her infectious energy and enthusiasm for connecting with our audience of female Millennial readers,” said HollywoodLife president and editor-in-chief Fuller.
Those interested in interning at HL or getting coverage for an awards show should note that both areas now fall within the news editor’s purview. Before joining HL as an editorial assistant in 2013, Longeretta was associate editor at yourtango.com.
Davis meanwhile is essentially taking over for executive editor William Earl, who has shifted to Penske Media’s business development team. Both she and Longeretta are based out of PMC, HL’s New York office.[Photo courtesy: HollywoodLife]
