blenderrrrweezy.jpgKent Brownridge, the former Wenner Media honcho who came out of retirement last year to become CEO and chairman of Blender publishers Alpha Media Group, stepped down from his CEO role yesterday, although he’ll continue to stay on as chairman. He claimed that his reason for stepping down was the combination of 100-hour workweeks and a new wife, although WWD notes that Blender‘s year-to-date ad pages are down 23.5% from where they were last year. (Circulation, however, is up 15% to around 952,000; meanwhile, ad pages at sister pub Maxim are flat, while its circulation was down 1%.) [WWD via The Daily Swarm]
