Deborah Needleman was named editor of The Wall Street Journal weekend lifestyle section, expected to appear in fall, as well as editor-in-chief of WSJ, a fashion, furnishing and travel magazine started two years ago for selected Journal subscribers.
Needleman, who served as editor of Condé Nast’s Domino until it closed last year, had been consulting on the expansion of the Journal‘s weekend section.
The appointment was reported earlier today on Women’s Wear Daily‘s Website, which added that Needleman was rumored to be among those in the running for editor of The New York Times‘ “T” before the position went to Sally Singer.
Needleman takes over for Tina Gaudoin, who returned to London, where she is a contributor to The Wall Street Journal Europe.
