Glenn Hall Named Editor of Marketwatch

Glenn Hall has been named the new editor of Marketwatch. Hall comes to the business and finance site from The Blaze, where he had served as managing editor since last summer.

Hall had previously served as editor-in-chief of TheStreet.com. He also ran Bloomberg News’ political desk in Washington for a decade.

“Glenn is exceptionally well prepared to lead Marketwatch,” said Gerard Baker, editor-in-chief of Dow Jones and WSJ’s managing editor, in a statement. “He’s a wintered business and finance journalist who knows markets through and through, and he’s worked almost his entire career in electronic or web journalism.”

Hall reports to Almar Latour, executive editor of Dow Jones and WSJ.

With Everyone Kicked to the Curb, OCR Biz Editor Leaving for TheStreet

1c65be6.jpgOC Register Editor Ken Brusic reportedly sent a memo out to the five or six people who still work at the paper, letting them know that biz editor Glenn Hall is leaving to become editor at TheStreet.com.

Brusic sees fit to inform his tattered troops that Hall’s decision has nothing to do with the low morale, continued cuts and general ennui that has gripped the newsroom. Nope. None at all:

“Though the timing is not great, Glenn assures me his decision was not prompted by the recent layoffs or a lack of confidence in our company or our industry. This move is, in fact, a great opportunity to build on his fine accomplishments here.”

Sure. Good luck, Glenn.

OC Register Births Changes, Gets A “Moms” Section

batonchange.jpgWhen long-time Orange County Register features editor Cathy Lawhon left the paper for the luxurious life of flackdom, we wondered how the paper was possibly going to publish. Who could step in to do the work of a woman who was already doing the work of five?

The answer, it seems, is no one and everyone. OCR announced major changes to its features department, shuffling people around, starting up new Online sections and giving Health editor Andre Mouchard the plum job of overseeing “Morning Reads” (the longish features that run, like Column Ones, on the Reg’s front page).

More of the changes are described in the memo below. But don’t ask us what OCmoms.com is. We have no idea.
