Rumors Circulate About New WSJ EIC

When News Corp. splits its companies into two segments — entertainment and publishing — it is expected that current Wall Street Journal editor-in-chief Robert Thomson will head up the latter. With Thompson moving on, the Journal’s newsroom, according to The Huffington Post, is “buzzing” about who will replace him.

Here are all the people being considered for the top spot; or to replace the deputy editor-in-chief, Gerald Baker, should he get the nod:

  • Gerard Baker. He is naturally the lead candidate, but some at the Journal aren’t too happy about that. In fact, in 2011, one staffer said it would be “Horrifying” if Baker got the job. That might be a tad dramatic, but hey, nothing fuels a rumor like an overreaction.
  • Alan Murray. The deputy managing editor, executive editor of online is close behind Baker for grabbing Thomson’s role.
  • Michael Miller. Another deputy managing editor.
  • Matt Murray. International and investing editor.
  • Almar Latour. Editor-in-chief of the Journal’s Asia edition.
