This chapter focuses on Rona Barrett, who revolutionized not only the fan magazines but the entire coverage of entertainment news. Barrett was the first fan magazine writer to mature from the genre to become a full-fledged media reporter, and was Hollywood’s leading entertainment reporter from 1960 through 1980. Once she had conquered the new territory, Barrett returned to the fan magazines and introduced her own brand, which competed with and complemented her television work.
