Founding editor of Condé Nast's now defunct domino magazine, Deborah Needleman has been named editor in chief of WSJ., the The Wall Street Journal's glossy lifestyle magazine, and editor of a new weekly Saturday lifestyle section in development for the Journal.
"Deborah has shown in the originality, professionalism and energy of her development work in recent months that she is the perfect person to lead the next phase of the magazine's expansion and to create a Saturday section unique in both character and content," said Robert Thomson, editor in chief of Dow Jones & Company and managing editor of The Wall Street Journal.
"There is great momentum and energy at the paper, and a mandate for innovation, and I am excited to be a part of it," said Needleman.
