NEW YORK, NY / July 19, 2022 / ENTtech Media Group LLC, announced today the appointment of Justin Moran, as the new Editor in Chief of PAPER, effective immediately. Moran first joined PAPER Magazine in 2017 as the publication’s Digital Managing Editor, where he oversaw papermag.com, and then as a Digital Director, where he led the media company’s larger editorial department and all work across its digital and social channels.
“I’m so pleased to be announcing Justin Moran as our new Editor in Chief of PAPER. Justin has a deep knowledge and appreciation of the brand’s DNA, a true understanding of our audiences and the cultural conversations that drive them. He has brought intellectual rigor to PAPER’s iconic counterculture voice by embracing an LGBTQ ideology,” said Tom Florio, CEO & Founder of ENTtech Media Group.
During his tenure at PAPER, Moran built an online community platform where the biggest names in pop culture sit alongside rising talent, providing a constant editorial mix that directly reflects the way we consume content on social media. He has made a point to double down on queer storytelling and identities across PAPER, deepening the magazine’s commitment to amplifying marginalized LGBTQ voices to mass audiences across the internet.
“PAPER has always been a champion of rising talent and, more recently in its evolution, also became a space for established stars to reinvent themselves and play around,” said Moran. “I’m excited to keep exploring that intersection and lean even further into the internet generation with our content. Queer ideas are mainstream ideas and PAPER will continue being a leader of that ideology.”
