WSJ Latest Departure: Greg Ip

wsj-bookshelf.gifAnother week, another high level departure at Rupert Murdoch’s Wall St. Journal (we guess being loved by Jack Shafer just isn’t enough).

This time Reuters is reporting that Greg Ip, the Journal’s “influential” Federal Reserve reporter will leave the paper next month and join the Economist magazine as U.S. economics editor. Ip says he’s looking forward to expanding his horizons, though, apparently news of Ip’s departure coincided with the Journal running a Page One story from reporter Sudeep Reddy that typically would have been Ip’s beat. Hmmm. Stay tuned.
