Condé Searches for Next Details Publisher

Condé Nast is on the hunt for the next publisher of Details, so why not stir the rumor mill? According to WWD, there are a few people being considered to fill the role left by Kevin Martinez earlier this month. Martinez, Details’ publisher since 2011, left to join Maxim.

Here’s the list of possible Martinez replacements:

Of those, Wagenheim is the least likely to take over Details. Why? Because he flat out told WWD “It’s not happening.” Hey, calm down buddy. We’re talking about you getting a new job, not getting fired.

As for the rest of them, feel free to speculate about their future roles at your leisure.

Jason Wagenheim Shifts to Teen Vogue

Last week Jason Wagenheim was abruptly booted as Publisher of Glamour after only three months. The day after the dismissal Wagenheim insisted he was staying at Condé Nast, and we now know that he indeed is — as Publisher of Teen Vogue.

Ad Age reports that he is taking the job from Sabine Feldmann, who has been Vice President and Publisher of Teen Vogue since April of last year. There is no word what the future holds for Feldmann, but sources are speculating that she’ll end up at Details, which has been without a Publisher since Paul Jowdy left. This would be odd though, because David Hamilton was promoted to fill Jowdy’s spot.

We’ll keep you posted when we hear how things shake out.

Jason Wagenheim Out as Glamour Publisher After Only Three Months

Jason Wagenheim just moved from Entertainment Weekly to Glamour in early September, but now, according to Ad Age, he’s already outBill Wackermann, the former Publisher of Glamour and current Executive Vice President and Publishing Director, is assuming control of the title in Wagenheim’s absence.

No reasons were given for the quick move for Wagenheim, but Ad Age has some theories:

Mr. Wackermann, a hands-on executive who was successful in his run as publisher as Glamour’s publisher, may not have stepped back as Mr. Wagenheim expected, people familiar with the situation said. But Conde may also have changed its mind and decided it didn’t want Mr. Wackermann distanced from the business he ran well for many years.

We’ll keep you posted as more details become available.

Jason is smart and driven and brings the right experience having served on multiple Condé Nast brands.”

Wagenheim’s first day is September 14.
