It’s been a crazy year for Janice Min. Since the powerhouse editor jetted off to the West Coast to take over The Hollywood Reporter, the 81-year-old publication has pulled in more than 55 billion media impressions and received more Web traffic than its three biggest competitors combined.
At first glance, it seems Min is settling in nicely with her big move to Los Angeles. But the publishing vet says there are some big differences of the media scene in both coasts that made the transition rough.
“It’s weird,” the editorial director told us. “New York is so media-centric. People find people in the media fascinating.” But L.A., said Min, isn’t down for fawning over big-name editors when there are Hollywood heavyweights stealing the limelight. “There’s no media hangout in L.A.”
