Ellen Levine, an Editorial Consultant for Hearst Magazines, works across corporate divisions, from newspapers, to television to entertainment, to develop new projects and foster ideas and collaboration.
From 2006 to 2016, Levine was the editorial director of Hearst Magazines. In this role, she focused on strengthening current titles and developing new editorial magazines, as well as evaluating opportunities for brand extensions, books, cross-promotional magazine opportunities, and monitoring shifts in consumer needs.
In 2000, she launched O, The Oprah Magazine, which made history as the most successful magazine start-up ever. That opened the door to more original brands. First in line was Food Network Magazine (2008) quickly followed by HGTV Magazine (2012) and Dr. OZ THE GOOD LIFE (2014). All four of these rank in the top ten monthly magazines in the United States. On June 6, 2017, she will launch The Pioneer Woman Magazine which profiles Ree Drummond, an award-winning American blogger and tv personality.
Ms. Levine made publishing history in October 1994 when she became the first woman to be named editor-in- chief of Good Housekeeping since the magazine’s inception in 1885.
