Joe Brown, most recently the top editor of Gawker Media’s Gizmodo, is returning to Wired. Brown has been named New York editor, a new role at the magazine. Brown previously worked in Wired’s San Francisco offices from 2007 to 2010.
Aside from running wired.com in the morning, Brown will be responsible for building a New York editorial team, which will include a senior editor.
“Joe is a smart, aggressive, agenda-setting editor,” said Scott Dadich, editor-in-chief of Wired, in a statement. “We could not be happier that he’s joining us in New York.”
No word yet on who will replace Brown at Gizmodo.
