IGNITION 2018: Legendary editor and turnaround artist Janice Min will discuss her next venture - a mobile streaming startup founded by Jeffrey Katzenberg
Janice Min, the legendary editor and acclaimed journalist, is joining NewTV chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg and CEO Meg Whitman in their new mobile streaming venture to produce premium short-form video exclusively for mobile devices.
As the former editor-in-chief of Us Weekly and former copresident and chief creative officer of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group, Min is known for transforming the once declining Hollywood Reporter into the modern entertainment industry's must-read.
NewTV has already secured $1 billion in funding from a host of powerful media conglomerates, including Disney, Fox, Lionsgate, MGM, NBCUniversal, Sony Pictures, Viacom, and more.
The startup's service is predicted to be organized similar to Hulu's two-tiered subscription mode with select advertising featured on the lower-priced version, according to Deadline.
