Gaudoin will work closely with the Journal’s news department and will oversee all editorial content that will appear in the publication, an announcement said. Additionally, she will develop a core team of magazine journalists and report to Mike Miller, deputy managing editor of The Wall Street Journal.
“I am thrilled to be joining such an august publication with such a phenomenal heritage,” said Gaudoin. “I look forward to bringing the world of The Journal reader to life, with the help of intelligent reporting, arresting visuals and a sense of humor.”
Since June 2007, Gaudoin was the editor of the quarterly magazine, The Times Luxx. She joined The Times of London in 2003 as the style director of its Saturday magazine.
Gaudoin began her career at Tatler as a beauty editor and in 1992 moved to New York to assist on the re-launch of Harpers Bazaar. During her time in New York, she also worked at Vogue as a senior writer and then as a presenter on Barry Diller’s Q2 Channel.
Returning to London, Gaudoin became deputy editor of Tatler before launching the women’s magazine Frank. After that, she became editorial director of the iVillage UK Web site.
Gaudoin is a graduate of Lancaster University.
