Wall Street Journal Names New Editor

From a New York Times story by Katie Robertson, Edmund Lee, and Benjamin Mullin headlined “Wall Street Journal Names a New Editor”:

The Wall Street Journal named a new top editor on Monday, saying it would hand control of the newsroom to Emma Tucker, a longtime editor for Rupert Murdoch-owned newspapers in Britain. She replaces Matt Murray, who has led the paper for the past four years, occasionally clashing with the paper’s publisher.

The Journal said Mr. Murray would take on a new role, reporting to Robert Thomson, the chief executive of Mr. Murdoch’s News Corp, The Journal’s parent company. Ms. Tucker starts on Feb. 1, with Mr. Murray assisting with the transition through the beginning of March.
