Playboy CEO vows to keep magazine in print

“Over my dead body will we quit producing the magazine in print.” — Scott Flanders, Chief Executive Officer of Playboy Enterprises Inc.

This bold declaration came just a day after the New York Times reported Condé Nast was ceasing publication of Gourmet magazine and other storied titles such as Cookie, Modern Bride and Elegant Bride.

Looks like baking pies and white dresses are as outdated as print media, but it’s nice to know enticing photos will still come hot off the presses.

Maybe Condé Nast should have experimented with naked cookies. Or dressed their brides in bunny ears. Apparently, that’s a better business model.
