People StyleWatch Editor Departing Mag

Unbeige - Fri, 12/09/2016 - 15:30

Lisa Arbetter is moving on from her role as editor of People StyleWatch. The mag’s executive editor, Bethany Heitman, will serve as interim editor until Arbetter’s successor is named.

Arbetter returned to StyleWatch last year after previously serving as its deputy editor. Before rejoining StyleWatch she served as InStyle’s deputy editor.

“In today’s evolving media landscape, being an editor fosters an entrepreneurial spirit,” Arbetter wrote, in an announcement obtained by WWD. “I have greatly enjoyed working with the StyleWatch team and expanding the brand into new territories, but the time has come for me to explore the idea of starting my own business.”

Time Inc. Hires Banks to Deal With Bids

Unbeige - Fri, 12/09/2016 - 15:00

As if we needed more fuel on the “Time Inc. is going to sell” fire, the publisher has hired Morgan Stanley and Bank of America to help field takeover and/or partnership offers.

While that isn’t proof a deal is imminent, the Wall Street Journal reports that the trio of Edgar Bronfman Jr.Len Blavatnik and Ynon Kreizto—who previously had their bid rejected by Time Inc.—remains interested in the publisher. And of course, there’s always Meredith lurking right around the corner.

The Meredith-Time Inc. rumors continue to swirl even though Meredith CEO Steve Lacy recently said “I want to be clear: There have been absolutely no meaningful conversations between our two companies since 2013.”

Sure, sure Steve. No meaningful conversations. That means there have been conversations! That’s all the rumor mill needs.

Vice Apprenticeship Program Seeks Parolees and Individuals on Probation

Unbeige - Thu, 12/08/2016 - 23:00

Vice Media continues to push the envelope, today with the announcement of a most admirable 2017 apprenticeship program.

CenterforEmploymentOpportunitiesLogoTypically, a criminal record is a liability for those applying for full-time employment. Not so in the case of the Vice Apprenticeship Program, as Vice Media, together with the Center for Employment Opportunities, is specifically looking for such individuals. From the announcement:

The six-month apprentice program will provide formerly incarcerated people who have little to no college or workforce experience with skills across a range of fields, including production, editorial, marketing and other creative jobs, at Vice’s Brooklyn headquarters, paying $15 per hour for 40 hours per week.

Participants will gain access to some of the best creative and strategic minds in media and take advantage of VICE’s state of the art production facilities, including edit suites, voiceover studios, screening rooms, virtual reality and more.  Participants will work across VICE’s digital channels, newsroom, television and film operations, and other divisions.  The apprenticeship is open to anyone on parole, or anyone between the ages of 18 and 25 on probation, based in New York City.

“While working with President Obama on Fixing the System-our documentary on prison reform-I was struck by the high recidivism rate, and by the fact that once you enter into the system it is indeed very hard to get yourself out,” said Vice co-founder and CEO Shane Smith. “I am very proud to be a part of this program to try and alleviate some of these issues by putting our money where our mouth is. It is admittedly a small step, but hopefully other media companies will follow suit and not only push for change, but also nurture a whole new group of producers, shooters, cutters and hosts that will offer a new perspective not only on prison reform, but life itself.”

The key words here: “…hopefully other media companies will follow suit.” Bravo to Smith, CEO and Vice Media. Those interested in being a part of the Vice Apprenticeship Program are being asked to forward their information via email to VICEandCEOFellows@ceoworks.org. Good luck!

Guardian Columnist Conjures Up Priest of the Year

Unbeige - Thu, 12/08/2016 - 19:00

There has been an insane amount of reaction to Time magazine’s selection of President-elect Donald Trump as 2016’s “Person of the Year.” On social media, in the press and at neighborhood meeting places, with several people casually mentioning to FishbowlNY that they will never buy another copy of the magazine.

Today, from across the pond, Guardian columnist Jonathan Jones adds a cheeky take. After noting previous winners such as Genghis Khan and Vlad the Impaler, he writes:

The claim that Time gave Trump horns has spread so fast online that the magazine has actually felt the need to deny what surely started as facetious speculation. It insists that it had no such intention and this is simply what happens when you have a big M at the top of the page: “Any resemblance to … devil horns is entirely coincidental.”

Tell that to Father Jerzy Bolochs, the former exorcist and consultant to paranormal thrillers who I interviewed this morning in an abandoned cemetery outside Pisa. In his opinion this is no “coincidence”. That would be like saying the rain of sheep that fell on Paris on the eve of the Black Death was a coincidence.

Of course the editors of Time did not intentionally give Trump devil horns. God did. This is, fears Bolochs, one final sign before the Antichrist is inaugurated as president in the New Year.

As a nod to readers who fail to read the full article and immediately take their outrage to Facebook, Jones has made his priest’s last name match that of a popular U.K. expletive. The columnist eventually turns serious and suggests people are missing the real brilliance of photographer Nadav Kander’s cover shot.
