Dylan Howard is one of America's best storytellers. Author, filmmaker, podcast creator, television executive producer, he is an investigator with an unprecedented ability to uncover the facts, no matter what the scandalous scenario. As one of the most feared journalists in the world, Howard brought down the careers of Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Hulk Hogan, Paula Deen, and others who were up to no good via explosive stories of unforgivable misdeeds. Of Howard, The Los Angeles Times said he has “spearheaded some of the most explosive celebrity exposés of recent vintage” and “transformed America’s tabloid culture.” Howard’s sense for news saw him rise to become the undisputed most powerful entertainment editor in the world: as Chief Content Officer of the publisher that owns Us Weekly, In Touch, OK!, Life & Style, Closer, Star, The National Enquirer and dozens of other digital and print brands. Howard is the author of seven books: Epstein: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Aaron Hernandez’s Killing Fields, Diana: Case Solved, The Last Charles Manson Tapes: Evil Lives Beyond the Grave, Billion Dollar Hollywood Heist, Royals at War and BAD: An Unprecedented Investigation into the Michael Jackson Cover-Up. He is also an award-winning podcast creator, as the Executive Producer of Fatal Voyage: The Mysterious Death of Natalie Wood and Epstein: Devil in the Darkness for which he was honored in The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences' Webby Awards. Howard also develops and produces premium unscripted shows including the 3-part mini-series "JonBenet: An American Murder Mystery" for Investigation Discovery along with "Aaron Hernandez Killing Fields" for REELZ. He has produced more than 70 hours of television in recent years. He created the “American Murder Mystery” franchise for ID that became a record-shattering series of limited event specials that explored headline-grabbing true crime cases that have captured the nation’s attention for years. It became the highest-rated show in the network’s history. From pundits to powerful world leaders, Howard takes no prisoners in his campaign to investigate and tell the truth about what he knows, at whatever the cost. Described by BuzzFeed as “a throwback to an older age of journalism” and AdWeek as “the king of Hollywood scoops,” he is the reporter who exposed Mel Gibson’s hate-filled rants; who shone a light on the high-stakes illegal celebrity poker ring later detailed in the film Molly’s Game; named Arnold Schwarzenegger’s mistress and mother of his love child, and who revealed NFL superstar Hernandez admitted to killing more people than he was ever charged for, thus making him a serial killer. Howard is perhaps best known for his stunning exposé of 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. Howard lives in New York City.Read more Read less
