Giant Publisher Out

giant_premiere_sm.jpgMichael Provus — publisher of the embattled bimonthly magazine that has seemingly shifted its focus and design with every issue — is leaving the magazine for Vanity Fair — leaving editor Jamie Hooper, for the moment at least, without a publisher.

If Provus’ move was to something other than Vanity Fair, where he will have the title of advertising director, it would make Hooper’s reportedly bizarre antics following the magazine’s most recent redesign a factor. For now, though, it appears the bright lights of Vanity Fair were too alluring.
