WSJ.com Managing Editor Blumenstein Named Journal Deputy Editor

journal logo 2.pngWall Street Journal managing editor Robert Thomson sent a memo to the paper’s staff yesterday announcing the appointment of Rebecca Blumenstein as international editor and deputy managing editor of the paper. Blumenstein, who was just appointed managing editor of WSJ.com in June, is replacing Nik Deogun, who is leaving print journalism altogether — he’s joining CNBC as the network’s managing editor.

Before joining WSJ.com earlier this year, Blumenstein served as international news editor and China editor at the paper, making her the perfect candidate to oversee the Journal‘s international coverage, Thomson pointed out. “[S]he is well aware of the challenges of life as a correspondent and acutely conscious of our digital potential, which she will continue to realize with her customary vigor and creativity,” he said in his memo.

Thomson’s full memo after the jump. Bonus points to anyone who can explain what the “troika” is at WSJ. (Update: We’ve learned that Thomson coined the term, which refers to the three deputy managing editors who coordinate the news teams and coverage for the Journal, in a memo last year. The troika is now made up of national editor Matt Murray, Page One editor Mike Williams and Blumenstein.)
