US edition of Wired shrinks as credit crunch bites

The economic downturn is taking its toll on US tech bible Wired – which doesn’t bode well for the launch of the UK edition later this year.

The Guardian points to the January edition of the magazine, which carries a significantly lower proportion of adverts than previous issues, with a smaller page count overall.

In December, there were 101 pages of editorial and 118 pages of advertising (a 46/54 split), whereas in January, there are 84 pages of editorial and 35 pages of adverts (a 70/30 split).

These figures may cause concern for publisher Conde Nast, as the new UK edition of Wired is set to launch in April
