The Wall Street Journal Chooses iPhone 4

The Wall Street Journal is equipping its print reporters with iPhone 4s, hoping to capitalize on the phone’s unique video capablitlies. According to Kevin Delaney, Managing Editor for the Journal, the paper uses a ton of video footage and that footage attracts a lot of views, so it’s important to have a device that allows reporters to produce high quality content. The New York Times’ staffers¬†also use iPhone 4s for their video reporting.

Delaney tells Beet.TV that about 24 reporters are now being trained to use the iPhones, and eventually many more will be distributed.

FishbowlNY assumes that only senior reporters will be issued the new white iPhone 4, because it’s very special. At least that’s what the ads tell us.

The Washington Post
lost its Innovations Editor to The Wall Street Journal‘s website today, when it was announced that starting March 15th, Jonathan Krim will be heading over to WSJ.com to take over the position of senior deputy managing editor. (We just hope that title can all fit on one business card.)

Krim’s tenure with the post has lasted for almost 10 years, as he’s moved from a staff reporter on the tech beat to managing editor and director of strategic initiatives. Krim also directed and edited two Pultizer Prize-winning series while working at the San Jose Mercury News.

WSJ.com Gets New Digital Czar

journal logo 2.pngYesterday, we reported that Rebecca Blumenstein, the managing editor of WSJ.com, had been promoted to international editor of the paper. So, it follows that someone would have to be named to replace her.

Last night, Wall Street Journal managing editor Robert Thomson sent a memo to staffers announcing the promotion of WSJ.com’s deputy managing editor Kevin Delaney to the Web site’s top spot.

Delaney started his career at the Journal as an intern in college in 1992. He went on to work in the paper’s Paris and San Francisco bureaus before joining the WSJ.com staff. He was named deputy managing editor of the site in July 2008.

At Magazine Publishers of America’s “Find Yourself In Magazines” event for those seeking to enter the industry, the mantra from industry panelists was one of encouragement: Magazines, they promised, are not going anywhere. On Friday, nearly 100 job-hungry college students and recent graduates crowded the Time & Life building for the event, designed to deliver guidance from magazine pros in editorial, marketing and sales.

Speakers included Parents executive editor and Ed2010 founder Chandra Turner, who’s been sharing her advice a lot these days. In a keynote speech referencing the doom and gloom of recent mass media layoffs — Turner herself was let go when CosmoGirl! folded last October — she said the industry’s current state was simply the next step in magazines’ ongoing evolution. “I don’t think that this is the end of magazines,” she said. “We’ve had magazine genres die and come back, die and come back. Now, I think [the industry is] changing to be more tailored magazines, more niche magazines.” She supplemented the prognosis with seven upbeat predictions for 2009.

So, what should mag-industry newbies expect?
