Interesting remarks by Hollywood Reporter editorial director Janice Min at Mediabistro via Fishbowl LA.
We increased staff at the Reporter by 35-45 percent, but hiring out here is hard. There is not a bench out here at all. You struggle to find enough working journalists out here to staff your publication and to even interview. We’ve been very lucky. We’ve had a lot of people from New York move out, but we’ve also found the most talented journalists in L.A.
FBLA also refers to "the small number of good journalists floating around LA." That leaves out a big bunch of local out-of-work journalists. Discuss.
