Galloway heads THR features, events

Veteran journalist overseeing about 200 features yearly

Veteran journalist Stephen Galloway has been named Executive Editor - Features & Events at The Hollywood Reporter.

Galloway joined THR as a reporter in 1993 and has served as film editor and executive editor. He's been an editor-at-large since 1999, writing much of the paper's awards-season coverage and film features as well as coordinating THR's distinguished round-table discussions with the industry's leading executives and talent.

In his new role Galloway will be responsible for shepherding about 200 special features a year, ranging from film festival and market sections to stand-alone issues devoted to Women in Entertainment, Next Generation and the Key Art Awards. He will oversee the 10-person features department led by features managing editor Matthew Belloni.

"As we continue to ramp up our presence around the globe and to focus on a wider range of creative initiatives to drive our business, we are thrilled to have a journalist as versatile and well-respected to head one of the most important units in the THR portfolio," THR publisher Eric Mika said.

"Stephen brings a multiplicity of talents to his new roles, from consummate interviewing skills to deft, insightful writing -- not to mention his organizational acumen and unfailing British wit," THR editor Elizabeth Guider added. "We know he will continue to elevate the style and substance of our special reports as well as introduce new franchises and events for our various platforms."

A native of the U.K. and a graduate of Cambridge University, Galloway wrote for publications including the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner and TV Guide before coming to THR. He also spent several years working for French television in Paris.

In Los Angeles, he studied at the American Film Institute's Center for Advanced Film Studies and began his career working for director Martin Ritt.

Galloway begins his job Monday.
