Media News: Condé Nast Folds Details
The above image is the September 2015 issue of Details.
In the final quarter of 2015, things are still shaking up at Condé Nast. We’ve recently reported that GQ has laid off about seven of its staffers, Linda Wells, the founding editor of Allure magazine has stepped down after 25 years, and Teen Vogue‘s publisher Jason Wagenheim is leaving after Thanksgiving.
After hearing rumors for months, donbleek.com could now officially confirm that Condé Nast has folded Details magazine. Condé Nast CEO Bob Sauerberg just announced today Wednesday (November 18) that the December/January issue of Details will be the magazine’s last.
Details was created in 1982 and purchased by Condé Nast in 1988.
Editor in chief Dan Peres and publisher Drew Schutte were let go.
Details.com will continue to operate as the company transitions it to GQStyle.com in the coming months.
In regards to Details, Sauerberg said: “We have decided to build on the success and massive overall audience of GQ as our men’s brand, and will be expanding the business through their GQ Style franchise. GQ Style, which has consistently been popular among upscale Millennials and luxury advertisers, alike, will significantly expand its digital presence and also increase to a quarterly print schedule.”
