Reuters Reorg Begins

Reuters editor in chief Stephen Adler will announce an editorial reorganization today, Talking Biz News reports.

According to sources, the changes are Adler’s way of “putting his stamp on the organization”—not necessarily because they are needed. Adler, former Businessweek editor in chief, started at Reuters in February.

Likely targets for cuts: editors. Talking Biz News points out that Reuters has three editor levels: “specialist editors, such as those overseeing company coverage, stock market coverage, Treasuries, commodities and other specializations; bureau chiefs, who oversee regional coverage; and a team of managing editors. There’s also a group of editors called ‘Top News.’” One of these levels is likely to be cut.

Also, global managing editor Betty Wong is leaving the news service as of May 27 and Stuart Karle, former general counsel for the Wall Street Journal who is now advising Adler on the reorg, is expected to be offered a management position when the dust settles.

The merger also “adds immediate value and insight to our file, and positions Reuters as an essential resource for all the professionals we serve across the legal, tax & accounting, and healthcare & science industries.”

Adler added that the company has “immediate plans to add reporters and editors to expand coverage in these important sectors.”

The professional division provides news to legal, healthcare, science, tax and accounting professionals, and Adler’s background “is perfect for helping us create news packages that are relevant to the customers (that) the businesses within Professional serve,” David Schlesinger, who will work with Adler in his role as editor-in-chief of the Reuters news service, told Reuters.

Adler announced his resignation in October, and was the first Businessweek staffer to confirm he was exiting the company when it was taken over by Bloomberg.

Time Vet Tapped To Head Up Bloomberg BusinessWeek

Tyrangiel replaces Stephen Adler, who announced his resignation last month.

Tyrangiel, 37, was considered a “rising star” at the magazine, working his way up from music critic to editor to deputy managing editor.

He’ll report to Norman Pearlstine, chief content officer at Bloomberg, who met Tyrangiel a decade ago, when Tyrangiel was a reporter and Pearlstine was Time‘s editor in chief. “I came to appreciate his intelligence, curiosity, energy, and integrity,” Pearlstine said in a statement.
