The Wall Street Journal Names New Page One Editor

Rebecca Blumenstein is The Wall Street Journal’s new Page One Editor. She will keep the title of Deputy Managing Editor as well. Robert Thomson said the following about the move:

She will bring her verve, energy, creativity and logistical acumen to the important task of enterprising journalism, both in landmark projects and in driving the news agenda (not being driven by it). Ambitious journalism is a vital part of our future. Rebecca’s global and digital background will ensure that our stories have maximum impact, here and abroad, and across languages and platforms. She will be traveling and talking far and wide to generate original ideas and pursue angles beyond the means or wit of our competitors.

Matt Murray will take over Blumenstein’s position as International Editor, and Alex Martin is now Deputy Managing Editor and National Editor, Murray’s former position.
