Kristina O'Neill Replaces Deborah Needleman at WSJ Magazine

WSJ Magazine Names New Editor and Editorial Director

Harper's Bazaar Executive Editor Kristina O'Neill has been named editor of WSJ Magazine. She'll report to Ruth Altchek, the newly named editorial director of both the magazine and The Wall Street Journal's Off Duty section. Altchek had been former WSJ Magazine Editor Deborah Needleman's deputy during her tenure at the Journal. The news comes in the wake of the much-publicized departure of Needleman to T Magazine.

"I am absolutely thrilled to be joining The Wall Street Journal, with its incredible reputation and reach," O'Neill said in a statement. "WSJ Magazine is on a roll, and I can't wait to pick up the momentum and create content that further drives the conversation."

A representative for the Journal told us that the magazine currently produces 10 issues a year, but O'Neill will increase publication to 11 issues in 2013 and 12 issues in 2014.

O'Neill had been at Harper's Bazaar since 2000, but before that she held positions at New York Magazine and Time Out New York.

Meanwhile, The New York Times announced today that T Magazine's publication under Needleman will scale down to 13 issues year from 15, and that every issue will include design content on top of stories about fashion, art, and travel.

"By covering the breadth of style subjects in every issue, and publishing on a more regular schedule, our aim is to serve our readers better and create a deeper connection to the magazine," Needleman said.
