Bruce Shutan is a versatile Los Angeles freelance writer who has written for about 75 publications or corporate entities. His extensive reporting on the American workplace dates back to 1985, with a showbiz sideline developed in 2000 when he began contributing to Variety – a must-read for entertainment industry insiders for more than a century.
He has been quoted about employee benefit trends in The Wall Street Journal’s interactive edition and syndicated radio program on work-life issues, Reuters and other media outlets. For 10 years, he was managing editor of Employee Benefit News before serving as conference program chairman of the national magazine’s Benefits Management Forum & Expo. Shutan also led several roundtable and panel discussions at the 2007 invitation-only Employee Benefits Forum, produced by Connex International, at the Amelia Island Plantation in Florida. He has written for several leading human resource trade publications, including Business & Health, Employee Benefit Plan Review, Human Resource Executive, HRO Today, Incentive, Plan Sponsor, Risk & Insurance and Workspan, and writes Voluntary.com InBrief, a weekly e-newsletter about employee-pay-all benefit trends. In addition, he has ghostwritten numerous articles, as well as written advertorials and white papers, on HR and benefit trends.
Shutan also has written for several entertainment trade publications, including Daily Variety, Weekly Variety, emmy, the 55th Annual Emmy Awards program, Below the Line News (for which he covered the 56th and 57th Annual Emmy Awards presentation at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles and 76th and 77th Annual Academy Awards presentation at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood), Film Score Monthly, Computer Graphics World, the CG Society, VFXWorld.com, DRUM! and OnlineRock.com. He has quoted top Hollywood talent, including actors Robert De Niro, Ray Romano and Eric Stoltz, actor-comedian Bill Bellamy, director John Woo, cinematographer Stephen Goldblatt, visual effects supervisor Jim Rygiel, composer Alan Bergman and celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck.
A member of the Society of Professional Journalists and Los Angeles Press Club, as well as contributor to Quill magazine, Shutan has been a journalist since 1983 – serving as Sunday editor and deputy business editor of The Gaston Gazette, a North Carolina daily, and managing editor of The Black River Tribune, a Vermont weekly. He also wrote for The New Haven Advocate, New Haven Preview, The Connecticut Jewish Ledger and The Hamden Chronicle. Shutan earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Boston University’s School of Public Communication and interned at The Boston Phoenix, the nation’s second-largest alternative newsweekly.
Shutan has performed and recorded as a drummer in several musical groups since the 1970s. Other passions include hiking, bicycling, golf, Mindfulness meditation and Bikram yoga, as well as volunteer work for Project Chicken Soup. He also is a member and volunteer of KJAZZ, America’s premier jazz and blues public radio station. He is married with three children.
