Insider hires Low as senior entertainment biz reporter
Insider has hired Elaine Low to be a senior entertainment business reporter in its Los Angeles bureau.
Most recently, Low was a senior reporter for Variety covering the business of television, with a focus on media strategy, executive leadership, and evolving platforms and streaming models. She’s written cover stories on Netflix’s global TV head Bela Bajaria, Mindy Kaling’s growing comedy empire, Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn’s fashion-meets-e-commerce series at Amazon Studios, and Hollywood’s reckoning over representation spurred by the Black Lives Matter movement.
She has also covered issues of pay equity, gender parity and representation in the industry, and regularly moderated panels at Variety’s live events.
Prior to that, she spent nearly five years as a reporter and producer for Investor’s Business Daily on the entertainment, retail and personal finance beats. Her IBD Weekly cover stories ranged from the gender wealth gap to the self-care industrial complex to the e-commerce retail wars.
She also co-hosted IBD’s “Market Update” and “How to Invest” video series.
