As Time Inc. separates from Time Warner, Entertainment Weekly may no longer be at the top of its game, under former Sports Illustrated digital editor Matt Bean, who replaced Jess Cagle after he was bumped upstairs to run Time Inc.'s relatively robust People Magazine. But EW alumnae are all over the media landscape. EW writer Josh Rottenberg is joining the LA Times to replace ex-LA Times senior film reporter John Horn, now learning how to be a daily radio host at KPCC FM.

As Time Inc. separates from Time Warner, Entertainment Weekly may no longer be at the top of its game, under former Sports Illustrated digital editor Matt Bean, who replaced Jess Cagle after he was bumped upstairs to run Time Inc.'s relatively robust People Magazine. But EW alumnae are all over the media landscape. 

EW writer Josh Rottenberg is joining the LA Times to replace ex-LA Times senior film reporter John Horn, now learning how to be a daily radio host at KPCC FM. Writer Nicole Sperling, on the other hand, preferred to leave the LAT to return to her old digs at EW. Alumnus Doug Brod just took over as editor-in-chief of TV Guide, with ex-Variety TV editor Michael Schneider as his executive editor. (He in turn is filling in for Horn at Kim Masters' weekly KCRW radio show The Business, along with THR news editor Matt Belloni.) 

EW has also seeded the publishing world with book authors, among them Anthony Breznican ("brutal youth," a nasty high school novel), Mark Harris ("Five Came Back," the story of five Hollywood directors during World War II), and most famously, Gillian Flynn, whose third novel "Gone Girl" is about to be a fall movie directed by David Fincher and starring Ben Affleck. One advantage the EW authors have: coverage in the magazine.
