Advertisers Pull Out Of FHM Issue Over Underage Cover Model

fhm_hogan_1106_sm.jpgLast week we reported Brooke Hogan, the 18-year-old daughter of Hulk Hogan, was the subject of FHM‘s fifth consecutive cover cover-up by Hudson News. We also posted an update from an inside source who told us that Hogan was underage, and that liquor advertisers had pulled out of the issue.

Now comes confirmation of our rumor:

They were forced to notify liquor advertisers, and lost those ad pages in the issue. Dana Fields, executive publisher and president of FHM, said that all of the liquor advertisers decided to move their ads to the December issue. She said that the shifts had been planned well in advance and that FHM, which has a circulation of 1.25 million and is owned by the British company Emap, did not lose any money.
