About This Expert

As Co-President and Chief Creative Officer of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group, Janice Min leads two of the most powerful and prestigious news brands in entertainment media.

Janice rose to prominence as the top editor of Us Weekly and subsequently made waves in the entertainment and media industries when she took the helm of The Hollywood Reporter in 2010. Under her leadership, The Hollywood Reporter won a series of awards, including a 2015 ASME National Magazine Award for General Excellence in the Special Interest category, as well as more than 50 National Arts & Entertainment Journalism awards, including Best Publication and Best Website. In July 2014, Janice and her team won an Emmy for executive producing the televised roundtable of the making of “Wolf of Wall Street.” In 2015, she was presented a Daily Front Row Fashion Media Award for The Hollywood Reporter’s annual stylists issue.

Within three months of taking over Billboard in January of 2014, Janice oversaw the revamp of the website and weekly print publication. Janice has also spearheaded the brands’ move into star-studded live events in both Los Angeles and New York.

Janice has also led an unprecedented move of the brands into television, overseeing the airing of The Hollywood Reporter’s vaunted roundtable series on A+E and SundanceTV, featuring an array of on- and off-screen talent, including Amy Schumer, Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis, Ben Affleck, Oprah Winfrey and Lee Daniels. Janioce recently announced a deal with Lifetime to air Billboard’s annual flagship Women in Music program in December for the first time.

Janice’s decision in 2015 to no longer rank The Hollywood Reporter’s storied Women in Entertainment Power 100 list or Billboard’s Power 50 made headlines for its feminist stance amid the growing conversation around gender parity, with outlets from NPR to The Atlantic discussing its impact. She is passionate about the Women in Entertainment Mentorship Program, a partnership between The Hollywood Reporter and Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles. The program pairs high-level female executives with underserved, at-risk high school juniors and so far helped send 88 girls to four-year colleges, with $2.6 million in scholarship money raised.

Janice is a graduate of Columbia College and Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism, and has been named Adweek’s Editor of the Year, as well as one of New York Observer’s “L.A. Power 25” 2015, one of the Most Powerful Women in New York City by the New York Post, one of the 40 Under 40, as well as one of New York’s Rising Stars, by Crain’s New York Business.

Janice lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their three children.
