Wall Street Journal Shuffles News Editors

  • Kate Linebaugh will replace O’Connell overseeing East Coast news, effective in January. She has been the deputy bureau chief for WSJ Corporate Bureau since 2013.
  • Neal Templin now oversees WSJ’s renovated New York coverage within the U.S. news team. He has overseen WSJ’s now-defunct Greater New York section since June.
