The Week: People News - Harbinson to quit Maxim

Derek Harbinson, the editor of Maxim, is to leave the magazine after just over a year in the job.

Harbinson has been unable to halt the magazine's circulation decline since he succeeded Greg Gutfeld last year. Maxim's circulation fell by more than 25 per cent to 107,687 in the first half of 2007 compared with the same period last year. Dennis Publishing now plans to review the title's direction and content over the next six months.
