Former Entertainment Weekly (EW) editor-in-chief JD Heyman was reportedly let go from the publication after eight senior staffers filed complaints alleging that he had made "inappropriate" and "racially insensitive" comments, according to The Wrap. The staffers presented emails and audio recordings to human resources documenting Heyman's behavior, which they say created a hostile work environment.
- One former EW employee said Heyman created a "culture clash" with a cynical management style.
- EW's former EIC, Henry Goldblatt, left the publication in June 2019.
- Meredith Corp., which owns Entertainment Weekly, recently named Catherine Levene president of its National Media Group. She is now the company's first female corporate officer.
