Condé Nast is on the hunt for the next publisher of Details, so why not stir the rumor mill? According to WWD, there are a few people being considered to fill the role left by Kevin Martinez earlier this month. Martinez, Details’ publisher since 2011, left to join Maxim.

Here’s the list of possible Martinez replacements:

  • Jason Wagenheim, Teen Vogue’s VP and publisher
  • Patrick Connors, Men’s Fitness senior VP and publisher
  • Christopher Cormier, Details’ associate publisher
  • Chris Mitchell, GQ’s VP and publisher

Of those, Wagenheim is the least likely to take over Details. Why? Because he flat out told WWD “It’s not happening.” Hey, calm down buddy. We’re talking about you getting a new job, not getting fired.

As for the rest of them, feel free to speculate about their future roles at your leisure.
