I became editor-in-chief a little over three years ago, and I remember when I was growing up, I felt that Entertainment Weekly set the agenda for that particular week’s conversation, like this is what we need to be psyched about in entertainment. So, I really tried to move that thought process into the 21st century.» Henry Goldblatt, EIC, Entertainment Weekly

And, at Immediate Media's Olive magazine, innovation helped transform the small but mighty 15-year-old publication into a multi-platform brand.
