WSJ.’s Publisher is Excited

Anthony Cenname, WSJ.’s publisher, seems to enjoy nothing more than talking about the magazine. Not that he doesn’t have a good reason. In an interview with Capital New York, Cenname revealed that WSJ. is enjoying record-breaking ad revenue year and even managed not to insult competitor T: The New York Times Style Magazine. Below are some highlights.

On the record-breaking year:

We’re up 13 percent since last year, making this the most revenue-producing year for WSJ. since launching six years ago. The ‘Innovators’ issue alone is up 47 percent compared to last year’s.

On why WSJ. is booming:

Editor-in-chief Kristina O’Neill has such a powerful sense of what’s new and exciting in the world of fashion, and advertisers want to be a part of it.

On T:

Competition keeps everyone striving to do their best work — they’re doing their thing, and we’re doing ours.

Harper’s Bazaar has promoted three editors. The details, via WWD, are below.

Still no word on who will succeed the magazine’s executive editor — Kristina O’Neill — who left to join WSJ. magazine.

Kristina O’Neill Named Editor of WSJ.

Kristina O’Neill has been named the new editor-in-chief of WSJ. magazine. O’Neill most recently served as executive editor of Harper’s Bazaar, where she had been since 2000. O’Neill succeeds Deborah Needleman, who left WSJ. to edit T: The New York Times Style Magazine.

“The appointment of Kristina, one of America’s most talented editors, marks a new phase of the exponential evolution of WSJ.,” said Robert Thomson, editor-in-chief of Dow Jones & Company and managing editor of The Wall Street Journal, in a statement. “We are increasing the frequency and expanding global reach in the coming year with our winning mix of intelligent writing and visual virtuosity — gloss without dross is our magazine mantra.”

O’Neill will report to Ruth Altchek, who, in a related move, has been named editorial director for WSJ Weekend, a new role at the Journal. She will now oversee the “Off Duty” section and WSJ. magazine.

O’Neill’s appointment is effective October 29.
