Los Angeles Press Club names editorial director of The Hollywood Reporter to receive its NEJ Luminary Award at its 5th Annual National Entertainment Awards Gala November 18 where winners of the best arts & entertainment journo awards will be feted
Janice Min, Editorial Director at the Hollywood Reporter will receive the NEJ Luminary Award for Career Achievement from Los Angeles Press Club at the 5th Annual National Entertainment Journalism Awards presentation. The Gala will be held on Sunday, November 18 at the Biltmore Hotel, downtown Los Angeles.
Min is receiving the award for her “reinvention” of The Hollywood Reporter as a leading entertainment news source for the trade as well as consumers– in print as well as online undefined in a time when the media map of the world is constantly being redefined.
“Janice Min’s turning around The Hollywood Reporter is nothing short of remarkable,” said Diana Ljungaeus, executive director for LA PressClub.
“Coming from the venerable Los Angeles Press Club, the Luminary Award is truly the honor of a lifetime,” said Min. “While I’m personally thrilled, I’m also grateful to my staff at The Hollywood Reporter, whose hard work and excellence have made this possible.”
The Career Achievement Award was instituted to honor a distinguished member of the Entertainment Journalism community. First winner was Joe Morgenstern, film critic for The Wall Street Journal. Playboy’s Hugh M. Hefner was last year’s honoree.
