I heard from a good source that the print component of Playgirl—revitalized by Daniel Nardicio in the past two years after a disappearing act—had been sold to a New Jersey publisher for an undisclosed amount, and that the online and products line (they have items in GNC and other stores) would stay with the current owners.
If you think that's anything to sneeze at, remember how lame Torso was when its editor was a fat guy. (Me!)
I'll be curious to see how the Playgirl story continues to unfold on the newsstand, and if the owners of the magazine and the owners of the Web site will be able to Play nice together.
If true, I'll be sad to see it go.
