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.
