The Wall Street Journal is making changes to its newsroom in order to keep its print product “strong and vibrant.”
Those words come via a memo from Journal editor Gerard Baker, who has tapped Bob Rose as print editor, a new role at the paper.
Rose most recently served as the Journal’s New York bureau chief. Rose worked for the Journal from 1985 to 2004, and then rejoined the paper in 2011.
“Bob will be directly accountable to me—and to our readers—for ensuring that the print Journal, the nation’s largest, remains indispensable,” wrote Baker, in the note to staffers.
