Matt Bean Is Entertainment Weekly Editor


Monday, February 10, 2014


The nearly one-month-old mystery of Jess Cagle's successor as Entertainment Weekly editor was resolved on Feb. 10 when Cagle--who has doubled as People editor and EW editorial director since Jan. 13--announced the intra-Time Inc. hire of SportsIllustrated.com managing editor Matt Bean. He leaves one content-busy brand for another, with the post-Super Bowl SI in the midst of the Winter Olympics and about to embark on the Swimsuit issue's 50th anniversary.  EW will culminate its busy awards season with the Oscars on March 2.

Bean came to SI and Time Inc. in Aug. 2012 from Rodale, where min digital media editor Steve Smith credited his stewardship for "developing one of the most ambitious and sophisticated mobile app programs of any magazine publisher."  As Men's Health articles editor earlier during his eight-year stint, he oversaw the National Magazine Award-nominated front-of-book section and spearheaded the launch of the first-to-market tablet edition in 2010.

Being the on-air host of Spike TV's adventure-sports driven The Playbook while at MH extended to Bean starting the SI Now daily live talk show.

Said Cagle: "Matt's arrival is a testament to Time Inc.'s confidence in EW. He is [an especially] talented editor well-suited to this unique brand, and it will be a thrill to see where he and the extraordinary staff take EW in the years to come."
