Jeffrey Kanige has been named editor in chief of TheStreet and The Deal. Kanige previously served as editor in chief of The Deal. Moving Kanige to editor of both brands is designed to help unify TheStreet and The Deal’s newsrooms.

He is skilled at developing sources and writing stories, which The Deal’s lucrative subscribers want to read.”
Kanige is succeeding Janet Guyon, who was named editor of TheStreet last year. Guyon is leaving the company.
