Talking Biz News reports that Deogun has held the WSJ position since July 2008, overseeing “the paper’s global network of bureaus and correspondents.” Deogun had also been the editor of the Money & Investing section and deputy chief of the Washington bureau.

Charlie Gasparino and Steve Liesman were also WSJ staffers that moved CNBC.

The Times also reports:

As managing editor, Mr. Deogun will be responsible for day-to-day business news coverage and long-term strategy. The network’s current managing editor is Tyler Mathisen who, according to a CNBC employee who asked for anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak on this issue, will become a vice-president at the network and return to TV as an anchor for “Power Lunch.”

Update: It’s official. Senior VP Jeremy Pink sent a message to CNBC staffers announcing both Mathisen’s promotion and Deogun’s hiring. Deogun will start at CNBC next February.
