Quietly, very quietly, FHM editor Brendan Cooper has left the building, with Louis Raubenheimer stepping in as “Acting Editor”. Why Brendan left, I’m not sure… I went back to look in the October 2013 issue of FHM if he might have said goodbye in his ed’s letter, but there was nothing. And no mention in this issue. You can read Louis’ letter below.
When he left as editor of Sports Illustrated, he wrote his last ed’s letter in their July 2011 issue, and was able to say goodbye.
One of the biggest FHM-scandals happened recently while Brendan was the editor, but that being said, the scandal had nothing to do with FHM or Brendan, so it shouldn’t reflect badly on them at all… so I hope that the Maxim Barashenkov and Montle Moorosi Facebook-Rape-Joke-Thing wasn’t part of his decision/reason to leave…
Good luck to Brendan in all his new ventures, and to the whole FHM-team that has had quite a year so far… Christmas is around the corner :-).
