SHUFFLING THE DECK: Two months after a bunch of changes on the publishing side, Condé Nast is back at it again. Jason Wagenheim, who departed as publisher of Glamour last week after just a couple of months on the job, will become the new publisher of Teen Vogue. Sabine Feldmann, who had been Teen Vogue publisher since June 2010, will be named to a new job by the end of this week within Condé Nast, a spokeswoman said.
Meanwhile, former Elle publisher Kevin Martinez has been named publisher of Details and publishing director Bill Wackermann has been pulled off the monthly. Wackermann took over as publishing director for Details two years ago after he asked for an opportunity to reboot it. His efforts did not move the needle far. Details fell 9 percent in ad pages this year after dropping 1 percent last year (Condé Nast’s other men’s title, GQ, dropped 6 percent this year after a 10 percent gain last year).

Wackermann will retain his title of executive vice president and publishing director and will continue to oversee publishers at W and Bon Appétit. But he will devote most of his energy to trying to revive business at Glamour. The magazine has long been a cash cow for Condé Nast, but this year hasn’t been a great one: It’s down 7 percent in ad pages and 17 percent at the newsstand.
