Forbes’ 30 under 30 list includes 18 women — ‘the most ever’


Forbes’ “30 Under 30: Media” list is out and includes “The New Guard of Media Makers, Influencers And Game Changers.” Eighteen of those picks are women, Emily Inverso reports that’s the most ever.

What used to be a long-climbed ladder in the information industry is now one built by founders and strengthened by innovators. Even in the four short years we’ve sifted through young talent to compile our 30 Under 30 list, the media category has seen a shift. First a varied list of titles, like reporter, producer and host, among a pool of premier news organizations, it’s become an even more assorted list of organizations that’s dominated, more and more, by a similar title — founder or cofounder.

Forbes also shows how few people on the list live in the middle of the country, how few are married (20 percent) and how few have kids (6 percent.) Here are some of the people on this year’s list:

Lori Adelman, executive director, Feministing

Jamelle Bouie, staff writer, Slate

Emma Carmichael, editor, Jezebel

Shani Hilton, executive editor of news, BuzzFeed News

Mattias Swenson, Dan Carlberg and Patrik Ring, cofounders, Bloglovin

Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin, cofounders, The Skimm

Kevin Roose, co-executive producer, Fusion
