Publishing giants Future and Gawker have announced an agreement to bring a localised version of tech blog Gizmodo to the UK market.
Gizmodo UK will be published by Future when it launches in the UK this autumn. It joins Future’s current online tech brands TechRader, T3 and MacFormat.
The site will be edited by former T3 news editor and Gizmodo contributing editor Kat Hannaford. It will be the ninth international edition of the site.
“This partnership between Future and Gawker Media is another example of our commitment to delivering best in class, must-read content in the digital space,” Future UK CEO Mark Wood stated.
“After becoming the first magazine publisher to be named by the Association of Online Publishers as Consumer Digital Publisher of the year early in the summer, this deal reaffirms our intention to continue accelerating digital growth within our business.”
Gawker Media CEO Gaby Darbyshire added: “Future is the perfect partner to run Gizmodo in the UK. They are experts in all things tech and understand the unique voice of Gizmodo. We are delighted that Kat, an old Gizmodo hand, will be running the site and look forward to working with the Future team.”
