HistoryEdit

The magazine began publication in 1985 in the UK under the name For Him Magazine[9] and changed its title to FHM in 1994 when Emap Consumer Media bought the magazine, although the full For Him Magazine continued to be printed on the spine of each issue.[citation needed]

Circulation expanded to newsagents as a quarterly by the spring of 1987 and then monthly in 1994. It subsequently dominated the men's market and began to expand internationally, being published in 27 countries including Pakistan and India.[10]

On 17 November 2015, FHM announced their intention to suspend publication alongside that of fellow men's magazine ZOO; the website is still updated online.[10]

In August 2016, under the guidance of BauerXcel Media, a property of Bauer Media Group, Nick Dimengo overtook FHM.com and is the current Senior Editor.
