Kate Lanphear to Step Down as Maxim Editor

She's moving on.

The great Kate Lanphear experiment at Maxim is officially over. Lanphear is stepping down as editor in chief, effective Nov. 13.

Lanphear came to Maxim from T: The New York Times Style Magazine just over a year ago. It was an interesting choice, and god bless Lanphear for trying, but it just wasn’t a good match.

Lanphear offered her best well wishes, but we imagine her future will likely be brighter than Maxim’s.

“Working at Maxim has truly been a rewarding experience,” said Lanphear, in a statement. “I’m proud of everything all of us at Maxim have accomplished and how far the magazine has come in the past year.”
