Chris Mitchell Joins Traveler

Mitchell is named as title's publisher.


Chris Mitchell has been named publisher of Condé Nast Traveler, succeeding Lisa Hughes, who went to The New Yorker. Mitchell has been the publisher of Wired for less than a year, following a four-year stint at Details. At Wired, he attempted to position the book as a luxury play — with unfortunate timing. Year-to-date Wired’s ad pages are down 57 percent. A successor at Wired is expected to be named by early next week, said a spokeswoman for the company.
