Conde Nast Finds a Spot for Wagenheim as New Teen Vogue Publisher
Conde Nast is creating an opening for Jason Wagenheim atop Teen Vogue, according to people familiar with the situation, resolving a situation created when it abandoned a brief effort to have him lead Glamour.
It isn't clear yet, however, what will become of Sabine Feldmann, Teen Vogue's publisher since June 2010. Some speculated that she may move to Details, where the publisher's post has been vacant since Paul Jowdy left in May.
A Conde Nast spokeswoman declined to comment. Ms. Feldmann did not immediately respond to messages left seeking comment.
Conde had hired Mr. Wagenheim in September to lead Glamour, one of its biggest businesses, reporting to Bill Wackermann, a publishing director who was previously Glamour's longtime publisher. Within three months, however, Mr. Wackermann had resumed direct publishing duties for Glamour, and Conde needed a new role for Mr. Wagenheim.
Now Conde is planning to name Mr. Wagenheim publisher of Teen Vogue, succeeding Ms. Feldmann.
Details, which reports to Mr. Wackermann, is one of Conde Nast's smaller businesses, with a paid circulation guarantee of 450,000 copies and 708 ad pages in its issues from January through December, according to the Media Industry Newsletter.
Teen Vogue, by comparison, has a paid circulation guarantee of 1 million and ran 821 ad pages for the year. Glamour has a paid circulation guarantee of 2.25 million and ran 1,507 ad pages.
