Abby Tegnelia Exits Item, Joins 944

Some quick dish on some recent shuffling in the magazine world. Abby Tegnelia has exited her post as Editor-in-Chief of the entertainment and lifestyle publication Item Magazine and joined another such publication (with a nightlife specialty) 944 Magazine.

Tegnelia, who replaces Matt Keleman, will continue to be based in Las Vegas taking over that mag’s Vegas edition. Also walking out the doors along with Tegnelia at Item was her Phoenix-based Art Director Gabi Mink.

Tegnelia should be a good fit for 944 since she’s well-respected by publicists in Sin City as well as LA. Good luck to her!
