The Wall Street Journal has just announced two promotions. Tracy Corrigan has been promoted from editor of Wall Street Journal Europe to digital editor, and Stephen Wisnefski has been promoted from senior editor of Americas for Dow Jones Newswires to real-time news editor.
According to a memo obtained by Jim Romenesko, both moves will be part of an upcoming redesign of WSJ.com.
Gerard Baker, editor-in-chief of Dow Jones, writes:
Steve will lead the creation later this year of a single global real-time news desk, bringing the WSJ.com home-page management team and the Dow Jones Newswires copy desk under unified leadership.
Tracy is tasked with leading the expansion of our flagship digital publication and overseeing development of WSJ.com, mobile platforms, social media, and premium digital initiatives. She and a team of colleagues will soon embark on a redesign of the look and feel of WSJ.com.
