Jonathan Krim has been named acting editor of MarketWatch.com. Krim was most recently senior deputy managing editor of WSJ.com. He had also consulted with MarketWatch for the past 18 months.
“In this full-time role, Jonathan will be based in New York and lead the MarketWatch news team in achieving some very ambitious, internal journalistic and audience-development goals that we have set for ourselves in recent weeks, all part of a larger business growth plan for MarketWatch, the free Dow Jones markets and investor portal,” said Raju Narisetti, managing editor of WSJ.com, in a note to staffers.
Krim’s appointment is effective immediately. The full memo from Narisetti is after the jump.
