NEW YORK — Following in the footsteps of its big brother publication Maxim, Stuff magazine has named “Access Hollywood” segment producer Laurie Kantor to the newly created post of West Coast editor. Two months ago, Maxim hired Claudia Nicolayvsky from the show to head up the men’s mag’s West Coast office.
Like Nicolayvsky, Kantor will be more of a talent booker coordinating celebrity articles, photo shoots and events than a content editor.
A product-oriented spinoff of the Dennis publishing laddie-mag sensation Maxim, Stuff has been a circulation success since launching six months ago. For the first quarter of 2000, Stuff has a guaranteed ad-rate base of 550,000.
