    Some of the bunnies are hopping away.

    Chicago-based Playboy announced Tuesday the magazine's editorial, art and photo departments will be moving to Los Angeles by next May.

    "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.  Open key positions will be hired out of Los Angeles," said Theresa M. Hennessey, the company's vice president of public relations, in a written statement.

    Decisions about other departments based in Chicago haven't yet been made, she said.

    The move isn't a complete surprise. The company last month announced it was consolidating two of its southern California offices.

    Playboy was founded in Chicago by Hugh Hefner in 1953.
