Alix Freedman Leaves WSJ for Reuters

Alix Freedman — a veteran of The Wall Street Journal for almost 30 years — is leaving the paper to join Reuters. John Koblin of WWD just tweeted that Robert Thomson said, “We all owe Alix a great debt for what she has contributed to the paper and the culture.” Freedman will serve as Reuters’ Global Editor for Ethics and Standards.

This is the third Journal vet to leave the paper in the past two days. Just yesterday, it lost Nick Wingfield and Amy Chozick to The New York Times.
