The wait to find out who will be Wired’s new publisher is over. Breathe people! According to The New York Post, Condé Nast is expected to give the job to Kim Kelleher, the former Say Media president. Kelleher was president of Say Media from August of 2012 to November of 2013.
Kelleher will be succeeding Howard Mittman, who left the magazine last Friday to join GQ as its new publisher when Chris Mitchell shifted to Vanity Fair.
This will mark a return to Condé for Kelleher, as she previously served as Self’s VP and publisher. Kelleher also served as Sports Illustrated’s publisher and Time’s worldwide publisher. She was named Ad Age’s publisher of the year in 2011.
We’ve reached out to Condé for confirmation on Kelleher’s appointment. We’ll update when we hear back.
