WSJ Reporters in Talks with CNBC?

cnbc_3-11.jpgWall Street Journal reporters Kate Kelly and Dennis Berman could be the latest editorial staffers from the financial paper to make the move to on-air reporters for CNBC. According to an industry source, there is interest in both and Berman has been seen at the CNBC office.

A CNBC spokesperson told TVNewser that they “do not comment on who we consider or who we talk to for a role at CNBC.” Both are highly regarded financial journalists and have appeared on the network in the past.

With Charlie Gasparino gone to Fox Business Network, it appears CNBC is seeking new seasoned business reporters to bring on board. The Wall Street Journal is a logical starting point as Nik Deogun, the former WSJ Deputy Managing Editor, started as CNBC’s managing editor just last month.

Kelly’s husband, Kyle Pope, is the editor of the NY Observer.

CNBC confirms that the network has recently signed a handful of new contributors including Former White House Communications Chief Anita Dunn, Jim Nussle, Deutsche economist Joe Lavorgna, and Hitha Prabhakar, who used to appear on Fox Business Network.

WSJ Deputy Managing Editor Heading to CNBC

deogun_12-14.jpgCNBC is preparing to bring Wall Street Journal deputy managing editor Nik Deogun on board as the network’s new managing editor, reports the NYTimes.

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.
