ADVISORY, Dec. 14, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
What: WIRED magazine will visit the NASDAQ MarketSite in New York City's Times Square. WIRED has been named Magazine of the Decade by the editors at AdweekMedia because it survived the tech bust to chronicle the myriad ways technology has changed our lives -- with editorial content that spans business, entertainment and culture. At the same time, WIRED itself is adapting to technology-driven changes in reader habits. It's one of the few magazines that's translated itself successfully to the Web, while serving as a platform to help parent Conde Nast re-imagine print glossies for e-readers. Howard Mittman, Publisher of WIRED magazine, and staff members will preside over the NASDAQ Closing Bell.
