WIRED magazine's sans-serif headline/deck

Sorry, I am new, and was curious to the foundry or font of Wired's sans-serif headline and deck fonts. They also seem to use several different body fonts.. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

WIRED has used Akzidenz Grotesk (or Grotesque) extensively, though there are
plenty of display fonts mixed in for feature heds.

Although Wired does use Akzidenz Grotesk for heads and decks, most body copy is set in Univers or Univers Condensed.

That's what I guessed Max, but they use serif fonts sometimes for special features.

For example (will post scan later): In the April issue, there is an article by Joshua Davis on the hologram that can bring peace to a hotly contested area of the Holy Land in the middle east. It is set entirely in a heavy serif.

Thanks for the responses again.

Scans or photos are vital.
