Variety Taps Carolyn Horwitz as Managing Editor

Variety has hired seasoned journalist Carolyn Horwitz as Managing Editor, in a move aimed at bolstering and expanding the leading source of global entertainment news across its print, digital and video platforms.

Horwitz will be based in Variety’s Los Angeles headquarters, reporting to Co-Editors-In-Chief Claudia Eller and Andrew Wallenstein. She will help oversee newsroom operations and the Variety editorial team of more than 50 staffers in the PMC-owned company’s L.A. and New York offices.

“We are ecstatic to have Carolyn join our team and we look forward to embracing her creative ideas as we grow our Variety content and brand in a myriad of ways. Carolyn brings to the job a combination of ingenuity, confidence and strong editorial and management skills,” said Eller and Wallenstein.

Horwitz joins Variety from Entrepreneur magazine, where she had served as Executive Editor since 2011. She previously held key editorial roles at Billboard, among other magazines. Additionally, she has written and edited several books on design and architecture.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Variety,” she said. “The magazine has made great strides in recent years, and I look forward to working with Claudia, Andy and the others on the team to build upon that momentum. It’s an honor to be part of such an iconic publication.”

Horwitz will work closely with the editors and the art and photo departments on the creation and execution of fresh ideas for the magazine each week. She will also collaborate with the EICs, Variety creative director Chris Mihal and PMC creative VP Nelson Anderson on producing the next evolution of Variety’s successful weekly magazine.

During her four-year tenure at Entrepreneur, Horwitz helped conceive special sections, features and columns and was part of two magazine redesigns.

At Variety, Horwitz will help coordinate long-range planning of cover assignments, feature packages and photo shoots.

Prior to Entrepreneur, Horwitz, a graduate of Brandeis University, served as editorial director for Architecture/Interior Press, and spent the earlier part of her career, from 1995 to 2005, at Billboard, New York, where she worked her way up from copy editor to managing editor.
