Dylan Howard, VP & Chief Content Officer @ American Media Inc.

Dylan Howard is one of the world’s foremost investigative journalists on celebrity, pop culture and true crime. He is currently Vice President and Chief Content Officer for American Media Inc., the publisher of Us Weekly, Star, OK!, In Touch, Life & Style, Closer, Men’s Journal, and other titles, the world’s largest publisher of celebrity and entertainment news.

Labelled “the King of Hollywood scoops” by leading media publication Adweek, the editor, reporter, and presenter is the man behind some of the world’s biggest stories in recent times.

Through Howard’s reporting, an audience has found themselves enthralled by a stream of exclusives that have brought Hollywood’s biggest names and corporations to their knees. Hulk Hogan and Paula Deen both lost their jobs after Howard exposed them in racism scandals, while Apple was forced to implement better working conditions at a Chinese factory after Howard’s undercover and hard-hitting report exposed the horrific working conditions that drove some workers to suicide.

He has brought to light the racist and hate fuelled audiotapes of Oscar-winning actor/director Mel Gibson blasting former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva; Lindsay Lohan’s drug-fuelled antics and jailing; the controversial death of Michael Jackson; the scandal-plagued death of screen darling Farrah Fawcett; the naming of the mother of Schwarzenegger’s ‘love child’; the demise of star-on-the-rise politician Anthony Weiner, who was caught by Howard in a series of lewd online messages that he had sent women; and the Tiger Woods sex allegations.

Most recently, Howard made a name for himself with a stunning Enquirer expose into Charlie Sheen that revealed Hollywood’s most unapologetic hedonist was HIV positive. It also was a story of extraordinary corruption, violence, lies, intimidation, death threats and millions of dollars paid out in hush money — a story that he chronicled in a first-person essay for The Hollywood Reporter that AdWeek called “jaw dropping.”

In 2011, Howard was named Entertainment Journalist of the Year at the National Entertainment Journalism Awards, where the judges labeled him the “go-to guy for authoritative showbiz news and analysis on cable and over-the air television.”

Howard also develops and produces premium unscripted television shows, including the three-part mini-series’ “Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery” “JonBenet: An American Murder Mystery” (Investigation Discovery), “Princess Diana: Tragedy Or Treason” (TLC), “National Enquirer Investigates” (REELZ), “Kitty Kelly Files” (REELZ), “Inside My Kitchen” (FACEBOOK WATCH) and “Stars … They’re Just Like Us (MSN). He has four news series that will premiere in 2019.

He is also the narrator and Executive Producer of “Fatal Voyage: The Mysterious Death of Natalie Wood” — a 12-part audio documentary series that takes listeners on a real-time investigation into the 1981 Natalie Wood’s death.
