After over a decade in the role, WSJ magazine editor-in-chief Kristina O’Neill announced on Thursday that she would be leaving the publication this summer. Her replacement has not yet been named.
O’Neill first joined the magazine in 2012, succeeding former editor Deborah Needleman. Her issue as editor appeared in February 2013.
Throughout her tenure O’Neill led WSJ’s evolution for the digital age; she oversaw the magazine’s 2012 relaunch and rolled out new products, like a newsletter that was published in between the magazine’s monthly editions. She also was in charge of the brand’s Innovator Awards franchise, which honours notable figures in arts, entertainment and more.
Before joining the Wall Street Journal, O’Neill served as the executive editor at Harper’s Bazaar, and held roles at New York magazine and Time Out New York.
The Washington Post was the first to report the news. A spokesperson for The Wall Street Journal did not respond to a request for comment.
