Hugo Lindgren, former editor of NYT Magazine, to run Hollywood Reporter

Hugo Lindgren will relocate to Los Angeles for three months to oversee The Hollywood Reporter as acting editor while Janice Min and other key editors are working on a remake of Billboard. From Min's memo, posted at Fishbowl NY:

Hugo has spent a career editing and producing some of the most impressive weekly publications in the world. He most recently was the editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine for three years; prior to that he was the deputy editor of Bloomberg Businessweek and the editorial director of New York magazine under Adam Moss.


Though the words “New York” appear frequently in the titles of the publications where he has served, don’t worry. He knows his way around Hollywood. In his own words, “My claim to fame in Hollywood is that my name was once mentioned in an episode of Friends. My favorite movie changes all the time. Right now, I’d probably have to say Frozen. Like everybody, I binge-watch television, most recently the excellent French crime show Spiral.” In terms of a quick bio, he grew up in New York City, graduated from Duke University and is married to the writer Sarah Bernard. They have 7-year-old twin daughters.

He jokes this morning on Twitter: "Searching everywhere in Los Angeles for a copy of the Trentonian."
