Biography

Kristina O’Neill is the editor of WSJ Magazine, part of Wall Street Journal Weekend. Deb Needlman’s successor, she was appointed to the role in October 2012, saying at the time, “I am absolutely thrilled to be joining The Wall Street Journal, with its incredible reputation and reach WSJ Magazine is on a roll, and I can’t wait to pick up the momentum and create content that further drives the conversation,” her first issue appeared in February 2013.

O’Neill is intent on making the magazine into an image of her choosing, WWD reported her saying “That’s the freedom of it. We’re not talking about a 145-year history,” referencing her prior employer Harper’s Bazaar. She has also expressed her desire to bridge the gap between the paper and the magazine, redesigning its logo and ensuring that the two compliment rather than compete with each other.

O’Neill is a veteran of the New York magazine industry, holding editorial roles at New York Magzine and Time Out New York, before she was tapped to become executive editor, the number two role at Harper’s Bazaar. O’Neill has also worked as Candace Bushnell’s assistant, whilst the author was at the New York Observer.

O’Neill lives in Brooklyn Heights with her husband and daughter.
