Editor, GM Out In 'OK' Shake-up

It's only been five months since he started, but Kent Brownridge, general manager at OK magazine is out. Also exiting is Susan Toepfer, the editor in chief Brownridge brought on board, and art director Trey Speegle.

Northern & Shell, which publishes the celebrity weekly in several countries, went through a rocky spell last September acquiring and running Alpha Media, home of Maxim and Blender, with backing from the Quadrangle Group.
