INS AND OUTS: After only two months, Jason Wagenheim is out as publisher of Glamour. “I feel like maybe he had the impression that Bill [Wackermann, executive vice president and publishing director] would move into a different role and it never happened,” said one insider. “Jason came into the job with a lot of strategy and creativity,” said another source, adding that Wagenheim received the news Monday from Condé Nast president Bob Sauerberg, while Wackermann was traveling. It also came right after Media Industry Newsletter posted full-year ad page figures. Glamour, traditionally the company’s biggest money maker, ended 2011 down 7 percent in ad pages.

Wagenheim, it appears, won’t be out entirely from Condé Nast. Sources indicated he’ll move into another position at the company — perhaps the publishing job at Details, which is also managed by Wackermann. If Wagenheim does go to Details, insiders said the men’s title might be removed from Wackermann’s group, which also includes W and Bon Appétit.

Wagenheim’s exit from Glamour had many inside 4 Times Square recalling the unceremonious departure from Condé Nast of Carol Smith, another executive who was lured from the outside to join the company and then abruptly left — without reassignment elsewhere in the company. Wagenheim was formerly the publisher of Entertainment Weekly and Smith left her perch at Elle to head up the Gourmet franchise and Bon Appétit.
