Variety promotes Lang to executive editor
Brent Lang has been promoted to executive editor of Variety.
William Early of Variety writes, “In his new role, Lang will help guide the venerable showbiz brand’s editorial operations across digital and print platforms. He will continue to oversee Variety’s film, media and theater coverage, and he serves as leader of the New York bureau.
“‘There’s an infinite number of words I would use to describe Brent Lang and my admiration for his breadth of genius, talent and skills as a journalist,’ said Claudia Eller, Variety Editor-in-Chief. ‘He is also one of the most trustworthy, thoughtful and collegial people I’ve ever worked with and it’s a joy to watch him continue to flourish.’
“Lang most recently served as Executive Editor of Film and Media and New York Bureau Chief. He joined Variety in 2014 as a senior film reporter. Lang will assume his new role this summer when Variety’s current Executive Editor, Ramin Setoodeh, becomes Co-Editor-in-Chief alongside Cynthia Littleton. He will report to Setoodeh and Littleton.”
