Michael Wolff, the Vanity Fair contributor and biographer of Rupert Murdoch, has been signed up by Condé Nast as a columnist for the UK edition of GQ.

Wolff, who is also the founder of newser.com, will be joined as a new GQ columnist by Simon Schama and design expert Nick Candy.

Both Wolff and Candy's first pieces will feature in the World Cup special July issue of GQ, out later this month, with Wolff kicking off his contribution to the magazine with a look at the TED Conference, the high point in the calendar of the new American intelligentsia.

Earlier this year GQ announced new contributors including Independent columnist Johann Hari, former cricketer Ed Smith, and David Rowan, editor of the UK edition of Wired magazine.
