In his first move since taking over for Janice Min, Hollywood Reporter editorial director Matthew Belloni is bringing on NBA legend and New York Times best selling author Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as a contributing editor for the publication.
Said Mr. Belloni:
“With decades of experience in the media spotlight and a keen eye on the pop culture landscape, Kareem will bring a unique perspective to The Hollywood Reporter’s readers on critical issues like race, gender and the role of media in society. His voice will be an especially important one as The Hollywood Reporter continues to expand its coverage and grow its global audience.”
“I’m excited to join The Hollywood Reporter because it allows me to continue to write about the intersection of politics and pop culture, which is where our values and beliefs are forged.”
