Playboy Editor Relocating to Los Angeles; Chicago Office To Eventually Follow

Jimmy Jellinek, editorial director and chief content officer of Playboy, informed staff Thursday of his relocation to Los Angeles. Jellnick will land here in August, and as for the rest of the staff, he sees a future for them in Lala land as well. From his memo:

I want to be clear that at this moment no definite plans have been made to relocate the rest of editorial. That we will be in Los Angeles [is] inevitable. When and what that time table will be I do not know but will endeavour to give you as much information as possible as it becomes available.

Jellinek, we would like to remind readers, is the man responsible for giving Marge Simpson a spread in Playboy. And we still haven’t forgiven him.

Hat tip Romenesko.
