David Callaway, MarketWatch’s top editor since 2003, is leaving to become the editor-in-chief of USA Today. Callaway had been with MarketWatch since 1999. Prior to that he was a columnist with the Boston Herald.

At the paper, Callaway will rejoin Larry Kramer, who founded MarketWatch and was recently named president of Gannett USA Today.

“David is a distinguished journalist with a deep understanding of digital news and we are thrilled to have him join the USA Today team,” said Kramer, in a press release. “He has successfully run a newsroom that produced regular television, radio, digital and mobile news products. Here, he will also lead a multi-platform newsroom that will provide our readers with the outstanding content they have come to expect from us.”
