FHM editor Colin Kennedy has left the title “to pursue consulting opportunities” (and hands up those of you who believe this) ahead of a revamp of the magazine. His departure comes less than two years after he joined the title from Empire.
FHM’s most recent ABC figure, for the first half of 2010, was down 16.7% on the previous six months and 18.1% year on year to 192,586. New ABCs are due out in a week or so – bets are being taken about how much more the circulation has dropped, and if Bauer will blame the weather.
The Media360 Blog has an interesting email from someone at Bauer saying of FHM “They’ve got no editor, deputy editor, fashion editor, website editor or deputy production editor now and their full time production editor is away working on Gazetta.”
