Deborah Needleman, former editor of defunct Condé Nast title Domino, is the new editor in chief of The Wall Street Journal‘s WSJ. magazine, Women’s Wear Daily reports. Needleman will also be editing a forthcoming Saturday lifestyle section in the Journal.
Needleman had previously made WWD‘s short list of potential successors to Tina Gaudoin, who left WSJ. to move to London. There, Gaudoin will serve as a contributing editor for The Wall Street Journal Europe.
WWD talked to Needleman about her new job:
“I wasn’t looking for a full-time job,” Needleman told WWD. “But I really started thinking about it more recently and it’s a time of growth and expansion at the Journal and that’s hard to find. We’re going to be doing some really innovative work.”
The first WSJ. issue of the Needleman era is set to come out in December, says WWD.
