The Drama At Brant

interview.pngThis week, there has been a flurry of news coming out of Brant Publications, the publisher of Interview magazine.

On Monday, there were reports that editorial director Glenn O’Brien had left the company. O’Brien had been appointed co-editorial director of Interview and Brant’s other publications,Art in America and The Magazine Antiques, last year when longtime editor Ingrid Sischy left the company.

Coming in to replace O’Brien is Fabien Baron, who was originally O’Brien’s co-editorial director but was in the role for a matter of months before being let go.

Of course, this whole shake-up has tongues wagging about the health of the company, with some predicting that the company might be in dire financial straits. As O’Brien told Fashion Week Daily, the publisher simply isn’t able to pay its freelancers.

Brant is now being run by Ryan Brant, a disgraced former CEO of software company Take Two, who pled guilty to stock option backdating. He was appointed by his father, Peter, after publisher Alan Katz departed a few months back.
