Randall Smith, who has been with The Wall Street Journal for 30 years, has decided to retire. Talking Biz News has obtained the announcement from Matt Murray, who said that when Smith first joined the paper, it had only two sections.
“On behalf of ourselves and three decades of readers, we thank and congratulate Randy for his contribution to financial journalism and The Wall Street Journal,” said Murray in the memo. “We wish him the very best in his future endeavors and promise soon to arrange a chance for all to hoist a glass in his honor.”
Smith is a Polk Award winner, contributed to a Pulitzer prize winning piece and is a published author.
