Jann Wenner and Conde Nast: The Titles May Change But the Song Remains the Same

Gus030507covfs1.jpgLast week there was a lot of buzz about whether Jann Wenner was considering selling Rolling Stone to Conde Nast. And while there’s been no confirmation on this either for or against Keith Kelly is reporting that Wenner may in fact be looking to sell celeb mag US Weekly to the Nasties.

Of course, no one will confirm or deny this either, though one “inside source” tells Kelly that “perfect sense for Conde Nast to buy US Weekly given it’s women, it’s celebrities and Us Weekly is respectable now.” Because clearly “respectable” is what the struggling magazine industry is gunning for these days. Anyway, the rumored price tag is $750 million. Stay tuned.
