Following the brave and sacrificial firing of several staffers in early August and senior editor Eric Gillin's departure for the fratless waters of Esquire, Maxim EIC Jimmy Jellinek presents his hungry staff with fresh meat:
I am pleased to announce two new additions to the Maxim family.
In the new role of Entertainment Director Ali Prato will be joining us from Giant Magazine having recently served as their Executive Editor.
And joining as Managing Editor will be Alice Siempelkamp former ME of House and Garden and Mirabella.
Both bring a wealth of experience and will be welcome additions to our newsroom.
Well, good for them. But — newsroom? Really? C'mon. That's like a frat house calling itself a think tank.
