The Week: Media news - Conde Nast to revive Wired

Conde Nast is to launch Wired in the UK, more than ten years after the magazine was closed by its previous owner.

The technology, business and entertainment title will return in the first half of 2009, edited by David Rowan, the former Jewish Chronicle and Guardian Online editor. The original UK version of Wired was shut down in 1997 before Conde Nast bought the magazine a year later and continued to publish it in the US.
