The Week: People News - Donlevy leaves Maxim post

Michael Donlevy has left his position as the editor of Dennis Publishing's Maxim and has been replaced by Ben Raworth, a former new-product development editor at Dennis Publishing who oversaw the launches of the digital titles Monkey, iGIZMO and iMOTOR.

Maxim was hit by a steep circulation decline in the last set of ABC figures, with a 59.6 per cent fall year on year and 44.5 per cent period on period to 43,542 copies. In May, Donlevy labelled trade journalists "wankers" following a Campaign article that revealed sales of the magazine had hit an all-time low.
