A few months after its rebranding, Travel + Leisure has hired a new overseer for much of its news report.
Sara Clemence, previously the travel editor for The Wall Street Journal, will start at Travel + Leisure next week as news director. There, she will supervise the magazine’s Upgrade section and formulate stories for the magazine and the website, per a memo from Travel + Leisure Editor Nathan Lump.
She’ll assign and edit shorter- and longer-form stories, and, like our entire editorial team, will be a regular contributor of original content to TravelandLeisure.com. And I expect her to play a pivotal role in many of our new brand-building initiatives.
Before joining The Wall Street Journal, Clemence did stints at Forbes, Portfolio.com, The New York Post and founded recessionwire.com, according to the memo.
In April, Travel + Leisure debuted a redesigned print magazine and a website with an emphasis on higher-metabolism journalism and a mobile-friendly aesthetic. Talking to Capital New York, Lump said that paid contributors would furnish content for the site.
