After two years of serving as editor in chief of WSJ. Magazine and Off Duty, the Journal’s weekend lifestyle section, Deborah Needleman will be leaving to edit T: The New York Times Style Magazine. She will replace Sally Singer, who left The Times in August after running the T magazines for two years.
Jill Abramson, executive editor of The New York Times, said, “As we look to expand and extend T and continue to evolve it for our loyal and sophisticated New York Times audience, we will rely on Deborah’s broad range of experience and creative energy. She is coming on board to strengthen the franchise and re-imagine its future on all platforms. Given the depth of her talent and experience, I am certain that T is in very good hands.”
T Magazine is currently published 15 times a year and is dedicated to coverage of fashion, living, beauty, design and travel.
Ms. Needleman was the founding editor in chief of Conde Nast’s Domino magazine, which launched in 2005 and quickly became a leading guide to style and decorating with an incredibly devoted following. It was one of the most honored magazines in its first year with awards including being named best new magazine by Adweek. Domino was closed in 2009 despite its critical success.
Previously, Needleman wrote on style, design and gardens for publications such as Slate and House & Garden. She was editor at large for House & Garden for several years. She began her career as the photography editor for The Washington Post.
Ms. Needleman is co-author of The Domino Book of Decorating and author of The Perfectly Imperfect Home.
