Hildy Johnson 2

His Girl Friday / Columbia Pictures

Hildy’s Hub is a community for women working in media. It addresses stories about women working in the media industry and issues they face working on the job.

The name is from the character Hildy Johnson in the 1940 screwball comedy “His Girl Friday”.  HIldy, played by Rosalind Russell is a newspaper reporter with plans to give up her career for an upcoming marriage. The character is an early example of a woman trying to make it professionally in a man’s world. Hildy, in the end realizes she is a “newspaperman” and that the newsroom is right where she belongs.

Hildy’s Hub is edited by a television news / features producer with more than 25 years in the business. Please join the conversation!

  1. I love “The Front Page,” and “His Girl Friday.” That’s to say nothing of Rosalind Russell, who I love even more. Hildy Johnson and Auntie Mame? What a talent. Thanks for following Journalism Ends Here. I look forward to reading your posts.

      • I forgot all about that. Shame on me. My mother had a copy on VHS when I was a kid (probably still does). That’s a great film too. As an aside, I’m preparing a post for my other blog, Politics Starts Here, that may interest you about the fast food protests sweeping the nation. If you’d like I can let you know when it’s up.
