WSJ Mansion section adds two reporters
Beth DeCarbo, an editor for The Wall Street Journal’s Mansion section, sent out the following staff announcement on Friday:
We’re pleased to announce two new additions to the Mansion staff:
Candace Taylor will be joining us Nov. 4. Candace joins us from The Real Deal, where she was most recently deputy managing editor; before that, she was a senior reporter for several years, routinely breaking news and landing scoops on big real-estate deals, as well as writing in-depth feature and investigative stories, including a look at the behind-the-scenes tumult at a new condo building and a special series on real-estate crime and corruption. Candace will be the lead reporter on the Private Properties column, where she’ll continue her track record of great scoops, as well as reporting and writing Mansion features and cover stories.
Katy McLaughlin needs no introduction. She is one of WSJ’s most expert feature reporters and writers, with an 11-year track record of writing some of the paper’s most memorable features exploring every corner of the food world, from sushi bullies to lazy locavores. A two-time James Beard-award winner, she has written a number of fantastic stories for Mansion in our first year, including a look at the farmhouses of top chefs, an analysis of the retirement-home market in Central America (the onetime summer home of Manuel Noriega can be yours for $2.3 million!) and a profile of an eccentric wine maker’s home and castle, complete with dungeon (for which she braved an in-depth basement tour of medieval torture devices).
Please join us in welcoming them!
