Playboy Magazine Moving Operations to Los Angeles
After more than a half-century as a Chicago-based institution, Playboy magazine is packing up for the West Coast.
Executives confirmed Tuesday that the magazine's editorial, art and photo departments will be based out of the company's Los Angeles office by May of next year.
"Some of the magazine's Chicago employees have been asked to relocate, while others have been asked to stay on in Chicago to ensure a seamless transition," Playboy spokeswoman Theresa Hennessey said in a statement.
No final decisions have been made about other departments located at Playboy's Chicago headquarters,
