Newsroom Changes at WSJ

The Wall Street Journal has announced a set of newsroom changes, reorganizing the way the newsroom works. At the top of the hierarchy, deputy editor in chief Rebecca Blumenstein will oversee all newsgathering efforts, including all bureau and coverage chiefs, while deputy editor in chief Matt Murray will monitor output across all print and digital platforms, including mobile and social.

The Journal’s Page One team is being broken up into two factions: news and enterprise. Longtime Page One staple Alex Martin will oversee the news end of Page One as editor, news, with deputy Washington bureau chief Matthew Rose relocating to New York to work with the enterprise team.

On the digital side, Jennifer Hicks advances to editor for digital products and innovation, keeping the Journal on the cutting edge of digital production. Hicks is a staple of the paper’s digital staff, and was most recently executive digital editor. Other changes involve the Journal’s myriad specialized offerings, with head of real-time news Stephen Wisnefski moving into a new role as editor for professional news products; deputy managing editor Ann Podd taking over business initiatives; and professional news and data editor Dave Pettit taking over events and conferences, while also further developing the Journal’s various niche news services.
