Mr. Wackermann is taking direct publishing duties back from Jason Wagenheim, who was named publisher of Glamour only in September. Mr. Wagenheim will be staying at Conde Nast in a new role, Conde Nast said.
Mr. Wagenheim had defected to Glamour in September after only nine months in his last job, publisher at Time Inc.'s Entertainment Weekly. But that quick exit got him a bigger magazine in Glamour and let him return to Conde Nast, where he had worked for nearly seven years, most recently as an associate publisher.
Mr. Wackermann, a hands-on executive who was successful in his run as Glamour's publisher, may not have stepped back as much 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 title he ran well for years.
Mr. Wackermann continues to have oversight of Bon Appetit, Details and W.
