"Wired" Names Scott Dadich Editor

By Steve Smith

Condé Nast acted quickly to fill a very big hole left at the editor’s desk by Wired’s longstanding and now departing editor-in-chief Chris Anderson. Taking the editorial helm will be Scott Dadich, who is best known in recent years at Condé for helping the company develop its tablet digital magazines. But Dadich has an award-winning history, especially in a previous stint at Wired where his work attracted several honors.

This marks Dadich’s return to Wired after a three year absence. He moved out of the forward-leaning tech and culture book in 2010 to become Condé Nast’s’s VP, editorial platforms and design. He had been at Wired serving as creative director between 2006 and 2010. He won for the magazine both the National Magazine Award for Design and the Society of Magazine Publication Designers Magazine of the Year Award together for three years in a row (2008-2010).
