Arthur Frommer’s Budget Travel has named Gillian Telling its new editor-in-chief. Telling comes to BT from Front Desk New York, where she served as editor-in-chief as well. Previously Telling had been a staff editor at Details and Rolling Stone.
“I am excited that we were able to attract someone of Gillian’s caliber to our magazine, and certain that she will continue to provide Budget Travel’s audience or more than two million readers with the award-winning brand of travel journalism they’ve come to expect,” said BT’s vice president and publisher, Elaine Alimonti, in a statement.
“As a longtime budget traveler myself, I can’t say how thrilled I am to now be editing what has always been one of my favorite magazines,” added Telling.
