Travel & Leisure announced Tuesday the appointment of Jane Wooldridge as cruise editor of the magazine.
In a unique arrangement, Wooldridge will remain The Miami Herald’s business editor and will also continue to oversee the visual arts coverage at The Herald while regularly reporting on the cruise industry for Travel & Leisure, effective immediately.
“Jane brings to T+L an enormous level of knowledge of travel in general and a great deal of experience of cruising—an area of travel our readers love,” Travel & Leisure editor Nancy Novogrod said in a statement. “We are thrilled to welcome Jane — a frequent traveler who has visited more than 100 countries — to the world of Travel + Leisure.”
Prior to being named executive business editor in 2009, Wooldridge was travel editor at The Miami Herald for a decade, where she won many awards for writing, editing, blogging, and photography.
Wooldridge had been travel editor since 1999. Before that, she was a business columnist from 1996 to 1999 at the paper, writing a twice-weekly column and Business Monday cover stories.
Woodridge has been at the paper since 1983. She is married to a local real estate development consultant and is a Duke University graduate.
A similar arrangement exists with Andrew Ross Sorkin, who writes for The New York Times while also appearing on CNBC.
