Judith Regan is an American editor and book publisher. In 1987, Regan approached Simon & Schuster with an idea for a book, a study of the average American family, with Ozzie and Harriet as its centerpiece. The editor at Pocket Books didn’t want the book, but hired Regan to work for the company as a consultant. She soon had a string of successes: Drew Barrymore’s “Little Girl Lost,” Kathie Lee Gifford’s “I Can’t Believe I Said That!,” and celebrity autobiographies such as those of Rush Limbaugh and Howard Stern. In 1994 News Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch gave Regan her own subdivision at HarperCollins called ReganBooks. She later had a show on News Corp’s Fox News Channel called “Judith Regan Tonight,” which is no longer on the air.
In 2006, Regan announced that she would publish O.J. Simpson’s book, “If I Did It,” but after harsh criticism News Corporation announced that it was canceling its publication and an interview with Simpson that was to air on the FOX Network. On December 15, 2006 Regan was fired from HarperCollins, allegedly over anti-Semitic comments that she might have made, and the staff at ReganBooks reassigned within the HarperCollins General Book Group.
